France ought to hang their heads in shame, & so should FIFA for that matter.
This whole seeding business that FIFA brought in all of a sudden stinks & for France to then be completely outplayed & get thru via a deflection & an offside/handball goal is just so contemptuous.
I think it really is disgusting. I don't mind games getting decided on wrong decisions but when it is such clear cheating that slips by, it is sickening.
France ought to be ashamed of themselves tonight. If England played they way France did tonight & got thru via a goal like that I genuinely don't think I would watch the WC. It is such a farce.
Platini has been left with egg all over his face & I really hope Ireland appeal to FIFA just so I can see him squirming. He banned Eduardo for diving when Celtic appealed to UEFA & Anelka's dive tonight, which he didn't get away with anyway but just shows that France were trying to cheat their way to the WC, was just as blatant, if not more.
France have been woeful in qualifying, the only beat the Faroe Islands by 1 goal! Against Ireland they were terrible. Boring, slow a bunch of individuals on the pitch & they simply do not deserve to be going to South Africa at all.
If they go anywhere near winning the damn thing it will be the biggest mockery of world football ever.
As a nation they should be hanging their heads tonight &, if they had any sense of honour, they would forfeit their position on the basis they are a bunch of lying, dirty, cheating, miserable, Gooner scum in blue
