I travelled to watch our irish squad play against France and i was shocked that the qualified staff that Fifa appointed to Ref the game did not see the hand ball.We all seen what happened and yet the ref and lines men did not. They were on the pitch we were up in the stands and we managed to see it. Maybe the ref and lines men needed an eye test before the game started. We dont have a chance of getting a replay after all the Head of Fifa is french.He is not going to play fair. Fifa are all the time telling us about Fairplay if they decide not to replay this game it will make a mockery of their association.The french all know we were cheated out of a chance to qualify for the world cup. They should all be ashamed if they too dont request a replay. I know i would not like to go to the world cup knowing that i cheated.Have Fifa not learned their lesson from the mistakes that were made over 20 years ago.Have they still got their heads stuck in the clouds.we all know the french dont give a dame about their soccer. There was over 70,000 of them in a stadium and we the irish could be heard supporting our team they sat like mummies.I hope Fifa take on board that we were cheated and do they want to be ridiculed for years to come.
