Argentina have cancelled their final World Cup warmup match against Israel scheduled for this Saturday in Jerusalem, striker Gonzalo Higuain said on Tuesday.

"They've finally done the right thing," Higuain said in an interview with ESPN, confirming reports the game had been cancelled following political pressure.

The match in Jerusalem's Teddy Kollek Stadium was to be Argentina’s final game before they kick off their World Cup campaign in Russia against Iceland on June 16.
