The Football Association of Ireland is hoping that Fifa and its disciplinary committee will, on behalf of football fans world-wide, act so that the standards of fair play and integrity can be protected in our game. I am Adam and I come from Northern Ireland and I am an avid football fan, supporting 'Our Wee Country' wherever I go and I was gutted we didn't make the World Cup Finals in South Africa next year. My congratulations though do go to Slovakia and Slovenia who qualified from our Group. I was equally gutted last night not only for the Republic of Ireland management and players but their supporters whose dreams were taken from them by the most blatant case of cheating from France and Thierry Henry. I am creating and signing this petition today and would like fellow football fans worldwide to voice their opinion and show your support for this World Cup Qualifier to be replayed so it will reach the upper echelons of Footballs Governing Body Fifa. I watched the result come through on Sky Sports News last night and Tony Cascarino made a perfect call when saying that if this had happened to the French, Fifa President Michel Platini would have been in the headlines today wanting a replay and not FAI chief executive John Delaney.
