There is a FAIR PLAY = REPLAY march tomorrow, from Landsdowne Road to the French Embassy, kick off 2 PM.
We are protesting against FIFA’s decision not to allow a replay of the France vs Ireland Qualifier. We are calling on the French Football Federation to join our calls for Fair Play to prevail.
We hope at the very least we will highlight to the issue of the need for Video Referreeing in games of this magnitude.
Please Join Us!!!
– BRING FLAGS, BANNERS AND WEAR GREEN
– CONTACT YOUR LOCAL NEWS STATIONS TO MAKE THEM AWARE
– ENJOY THE DAY!!!
Meanwhile the pressure for a replay continues to build. The man at the centre of the storm, Theirry Henry has called for a reply (hat tip Pierre) as have a senior French government minister and David Ginola.
Adds: FIFA invalidates Uzbekistan-Bahrain result; match to be replayed. Slightly different circumstances, but perhaps letter of the law vs the spirit of the law?
