World Cup 2018 By: Linus Onyeze | 25/10/2017

Terrorist group, ISIS have released a chilling poster of Lionel Messi crying blood to threaten next year's World Cup in Russia.

The image - released by known Islamic State mouthpiece Wafa Media Foundation - is the latest propaganda piece designed to spread fear through fans hoping to visit the festival of football.

Coupled with the startling words 'Just Terrorism' and the tagline 'You are fighting a state that does not have failure in it's dictionary' it shows the Barcelona legend wearing a prison suit, with his name printed on his chest.

The Arabic text mirrors what is said in English for maximum affect.

And this is not the only image released in a shocking campaign by the ISIS-affiliated group, as another image posted last week shows the World Cup symbol next to a masked man holding a sub machine with the text 'Wait for Us'.

They have swamped social media with an image of the rifle-carrying Jihadi and a bomb bearing the regime’s infamous black flag.

It stands in front of Volgograd Arena in Southern Russia football stadium.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be played across 11 cities in Russia from 14 June to 15 July, when the final will be played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

While another promises a massacre, saying: "Oh, enemies of Allah in Russia, I swear that the fire of the mujahideen (soldiers in the holy war) will burn them, just wait,"
