Guess who's not getting a replay? Guess what the worst organization in sports is?

Despite pleas from the FAI, the Irish Prime Minister, and even Thierry Henry himself (http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=701150&sec=worldcup2010&cc=5901), the Death Star that is FIFA rejected Ireland's proposition to replay their game vs France. Their response was this:


"In the reply, FIFA states that the result of the match cannot be changed and the match cannot be replayed. As is clearly mentioned in the Laws of the Game, during matches, decisions are taken by the referee and these decisions are final."

So FIFA is copping out and fails to admit a clear error. What a shame for the Irish team, and hopefully someone can step in, or France could step up and reject their World Cup bid (if that is possible).
