There is now evidence, perhaps from the FIFA camp, (who knows) that the ball did not cross the line during the German match.
As you can see from the photo below, taken from the goal line video, the ball was not fully over the line as the shot came in and beat the keeper.
Really at this stage FIFA need to introduce video footage into games – if they don’t they are stupid and behind the times.
Apart from Englands disallowed goal, In the Mexico game the first goal was clearly offside again, everyone could see it was offside.
Who needs to mention the cheating which was clearly visible on the Thierry Henry “Hand of Frog” incident.
FIFA – Get the finger out and don’t let this crap continue!
Mexico vs. Uruguay
I think Mexico and Uruguay will pass the ball to each other knowing that a nil nil draw will knock France out of the competition… The Curse of Henry strikes! If Mexico accidentally score, Uruguay just need to equalise with an OG – easily done ! It could be 12 – 12 as a premeditated joke between the 2 teams but will probably be scoreless or at least 1-1.
France vs. South Africa
The Curse of Henry strikes again – disarray in the French camp. If they score 40 goals and Mexic and Uruguay draw they will still fail to qualify. Bye Bye Henry – Go home and quit and don’t come holidaying in Ireland!
Nigeria vs. South Korea
I think South Korea will want to get one over on their neighours from the north and want to avoid any 7-0 hammerings. I think it will be a close game probably being won in the last 20 mins.
Greece vs. Argentina
Greece have a tough match and I think Argentina might knock a few past these guys.
Another hatrick for Argentina?
Probably miles off but these are my predictions for today.
Mexico 0 – 0 Uruguay
France 1 – 1 South Africa (but I Would love to see France 0 – 4 South Africa)
Nigeria 1 – 2 South Korea
Greece 0 – 4 Argentina
Good luck to Mexico as they play France tonight in the World cup.
I think the whole of Ireland are praying for a scoreline of Mexico 2 – France 0 … With Mexico opening the scoring with an own goal from Thierry Henry powerful shot, in off his face) and the second goal a penalty after Henry handballed ( he was caught this time ) in the box. The Irish referee (Mr. K. Arma) had no option but to give the spot kick and then dismis from the field by the ref.
Who knows. … This could happen !!
7:30 tonight – We all hope to see Headlines reading “France lose against Mexico in the World Cup – Ireland Delighted“
