WATCH: Asier Illarramendi's incredible half-volley for Spain against Israel

A "KNIFE-WIELDING" Israel supporter was arrested after a pitch invasion in a World Cup qualifying match.

The Israeli FA later dismissed claims that the young male had been armed with a blade but promised that all six pitch invaders would face legal action.

According to Israeli website Ynet, one fan made a beeline for Real Madrid star Isco, dropping a knife to the ground just as police intercepted him.

"There was no security incident". "Our usual security measures were carried out, during and after the game".

The home side's governing body, however, have stated that the reports of a sighting of a knife were false.

However, IFA communications director Shlomi Barzel told Marca: "According to all the information we have, there is no evidence or indication that a knife was carried by anyone who ran onto the field".

"They played well and in the first half we did not know how to attack their defense".

Police spokeman Micky Rosenfeld told EFE that Spain's players were not under any threat of danger at any point while they were present at Teddy Stadium.

Israel fans had left the stands after seeing their side suffer a 1-0 defeat in their final qualification fixture.

Spain played without most of its regular starters because it secured a World Cup spot in advance.
