The answer? Of course it’s multiple worldchampion France. They have not even heard of Ireland. Is that a country? They ask.

It is about time for them to learn how little they mean outside of their own country. Really.

Thienry is not to be blamed cos its an instinct that makes him handled the ball. if the referee could not see the hand of henry what of the linesman? until FIFA adopts video replays, cheating will continue and controversial decisions wil continue to rear its ugly head. Tennis video replay is a good example for FIFA. Have u ever hear of controversial decisions in tennis?

And Bono, please shut up.
