Justice for Republic of Ireland National Footbal Team sign now

November 18, 2009 at Stade de France saw injustice and negligence brought into the Beautiful game of football.

Those who doubted football's capacity for cruelty ought to have been on hand in Paris or watch the video. After the Republic of Ireland had controlled lengthy spells of regulation time and ought really to have obviated the need for the additional 30 minutes, the France captain was at the centre of a controversy that left Ireland nursing bitter feelings of regret and recrimination.
Replays showed with utter blatancy that Henry had handled the ball twice before he smuggled it across from the byline for William Gallas to head home what proved to be the aggregate winner and it looked worse with each rerun. Ireland might also have had a claim for offside in the build-up. The feeling of injustice is uttered world wide, even French football analysts and commentators and been very vocal about it.

Many other similar circustances have been met in International competitions, the latest of them being the Brazil penalty against Egypt at the Fifa Confederation Cup 2009, that was video checked and the penalty given.

By this petition, we call on FIFA- the world Footbal governing body to urgently correct this injustice. We are talking of a generation of football players, whose dreams of playing the World Cup may be crushed as a result of somebodys negligence and or injustice. We will not also stop perceiving this as a conspiracy meted on the Irish so as not to leave France a giant football nation out of the World Cup for Fifas financial gains. Also, Africans can clearly see why they cannot win the World Cup finals, because a refree will meet injustice on them and get scot free with it, this has happed before with Cameroon in France 1998 and will still happen if the rules are not st straight now.

World cup participation must be based purely on merit and nothing else. By this petition, we call on FIFA, the World Football governing body to import justice in to the game of football by reschedulling the game France Ireland and let the better team win. Failure to do this will make the game unpopular and tell us in clear terms that International football is a game of conspiracy and mafia and that merit can never prevail no matter what.
