Abdullah Saleh Azam al-Qahtani, a member of Al-Qaeda, was detained in Iraq for planning an attack on the Denmark and Netherlands teams during the 2010 World Cup, as a form of retaliation for the “insults” against the Prophet Mohammad.
In recent years, controversial TV episodes and cartoons depicting the Prophet, have originated riots and stirred threats of violence. Veiled threats against the creators of American series “South Park”, the assault on Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks who had his home set on fire, or Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard who had a man with a machete break into his home in a failed attempt at assassination.

There was a thread about this earlier with the attacks aimed at US and English teams.
The quote for the Al-Queda blog said: "How beautiful would the game between England and the USA be when broadcast live from a stadium full of spectators - when the sound of an explosion rumbles through the stands. The resulting death toll is in the dozens and hundreds - Allah willing."

I will be pissed. I've been waiting a long time for this and I'm seriously giddy waiting for the World Cup. I wish I could be there but unfortunately the economy is #. Anyway, they injure any of the great footballers (Bendtner, Robben, Sneijder) and they're done!
On a side note, stop looking in the hills for some Muslim with a gun people. Al Qaeda is fake. More like Al CIA-a. They're trying to scare us like always. Screw them, I'm over their mind games. Not that it ever worked to begin with but I can see that it still has it's effect on people.
