France and the Republic of Ireland
Should play their game once again
Because the Irish have been robbed
Of their chance to go to the World Cup.
I feel real sympathy for the Irish fans
Who witnessed their team being “cheated”
I’m an Englishman and I feel really angry
Why do these incidents keep on happening?
It just needs one player to have the bottle
To stop the game when it happens
Say to the referee I handled the ball
Or no, the defender never touched me.
But I don’t envisage that occuring
Not with so much at stake these days
But the player who made that stand
Would earn so much respect in the game.
Football is earning a “cheating” reputation
Something needs to be done very soon
France may be going to the World Cup
But they really don’t deserve to !
