Should Georgia get a replay?
Roy Keane reckons the Republic of Ireland could not have expected their game against France to be replayed on the grounds of Thierry Henry’s handball. The Ipswich manager launched a scathing attack against the Football Association of Ireland for their protests following the match, and accused them of hypocrisy on the basis of the video above.
He said: “Ireland had their chances in the two games, and they never took them. But it’s the usual FAI reaction – ‘We’ve been robbed, the honesty of the game.’ There was one match against Georgia where Ireland got a penalty and it was one of the worst decisions I’ve ever seen which changed the whole course of the game. I don’t remember the FAI after the game saying we should give them a replay.”
Keane went on to say that the real blame should be put on the Irish defence for not clearing the ball.
