Israeli fans who arrived did not expect there to be a shortage of tickets and many of them expressed fear of being left without tickets for the game.

So far, the Israeli national team has "enjoyed" anonymity when it comes to tickets to the big game in the semifinals of the World Cup on Thursday (20:30). The players' families received the tickets from the FA and in general, tickets could still be easily found in the stands.

However, the fact that the Uruguayan team will play tomorrow in the semi-finals changes the rules of the game as there is a great demand from Uruguayan fans for the game. Uruguayan journalists estimate that between 10,20 and <>,<> Uruguayan fans will come to La Plata to push their team. The Israeli fans who arrived did not expect there to be a shortage of tickets and many of them expressed fear of being left without tickets for the game.

Santiago Castro, a broadcaster for Uruguayan television, explained the tickets, saying: "In Uruguay, young ages are no less important and intriguing than the senior team, so there is madness around the game as if it were a senior World Cup. Our country is very interested in the game and there will be a lot of fans coming from Uruguay, including Uruguayans who are in Argentina."

The families were also surprised by the problem and agreed that although they bought tickets to different stands, they would try to meet at the entrance to the field before the game and try to at least sit together as has been the case in the games so far. There are still tickets left on FIFA's website for tomorrow's game, but only a few and in specific stands, so many Israelis will not sit together and will probably be in mixed stands.
