BOO FRANCE!!!!! Bloody handball bastards!!!!

Where was the ref on that handball that put France up 2-1 for the win!?!?!?!?!?! I feel so bad for Duff, he was bawling at the end of the match.

Good job, Ireland. You deserved that win, not cheatin arse France!

Yeah it was a disgrace! And not only did Henry handle it once, but TWICE. Probably our best performance in the last few years.

It's an absolute farce that FIFA can't even introduce a video ref.

I saw Sky Sports do a reenactment of the play and the referee was screened by several players. However, the linesman had a clear view of the Henry handball...who knows why he didn't call it.

Thing is, Ireland had several excellent chances to put this match away before it even went to extra time...they just didn't take them. Still, it's a tough break.

I wanted France to go through but I wish it had been accomplished in a different way.

The USMNT would smoke the Frogs right now. Did you even watch either leg? French football has been in quick decline since Zidane left them with no creativity or dignity. Central American countries don't dive as much as they do now.

Then again, no Ribery.

The same USMNT that bends over to any subpar team when their precious little donovan isnt playing...no way

I'd take a zidane-less french Side over an american one any day.

But supposedly France was denied a penalty kick earlier in the match. Did anyone see it? If so, you really have to net them out and accept the result.
