Good choices I'd think.


What's wrong with this picture:

Ireland have appealed to be allowed to compete as a 33rd team in next year's World Cup finals, Fifa president Sepp Blatter said.

Although the inclusion of an unprecedented extra team would cause serious logistical problems including extra unscheduled matches, Blatter said the Fifa executive committee would consider Ireland's request at their extraordinary meeting on Wednesday.


Ireland were eliminated from the competition earlier this month by France after Thierry Henry, pictured, handled the ball in the build-up to William Gallas' equalizer that gave his side a 1-1 draw and a 2-1 aggregate play-off win.

The draw for the World Cup will take place in Cape Town on Friday.


I just say Ireland go, France stay home. Cheatin basterds.

how can Ireland go to the World Cup?? They were drawing 1-1 (on agg) at the time of the handball, a draw doesn't get them to the world cup. They would need a replay but FIFA have already said NO. Ireland should quit whingeing, its done, over, rightly or wrongly.
