The Match **DO NOT START OTHER MATCH THREADS**

Folks you can post away in this thread, and this thread alone, about tonights match.

Charter Rules apply and a breach of these will lead to a ban.

We're all gutted over the result but lets keep it civil, no racism and no threats of voilence.


Petition to get FIFA to review the match.

Facebook Group for FIFA to sanction replay.

If Henry had any honesty or integrity about him, he would have done a Di Canio on it and admitted to the ref that he handled it. Retrospective decisions need to be introduced, one look at the replay on the big screen and the ref could have seen it was a clear hand ball. It would have taken a matter of seconds.

I hope Henry is banned and does not go to the world cup. I think that could be the only just outcome of this now. FIFA have it in their power, now lets see if they have the balls to do something about it.

YES! An online petition will get the result of the match changed. Why didn't I think of that?

as horrible as it was to see henry celebrate like that after the handball goal... its the ref and linesmen that annoyed me!! if there ever was a time to introduce video reffiing in footy this has to be it.

cant help but notice how FIFA are editing their site to not have any mention of this handball....

Petitions wont do anything: Come on. Its Populism. IF every country did it it would be a matter of Majority Rules and etc. etc.

Im sure Irish officials will exhaust every normal channel and every FIFA by-law to see if anything can be done, but dont put your hope in an online petition: They rarely (if ever?) work.

Can you explain how France were trying to lose that match?? Just because a team play bad this means they're trying to lose??

I, too, am proud of the team, thought they were brilliant tonight.
