French want World Cup Final replayed.

I was wondering how long it would take the Froggies to want the Final replayed. They are the ones who called Lance Armstrong a cheat and the ones who called the London 2012 Olympics bidders cheats. So it's only natural for them to say that the World Cup Final should be replayed because they didn't win.



Lawyer to challenge Zidane's red card
Thursday July 13, 2006






PARIS, July 13 (Reuters) -- A French lawyer plans to ask a court to intervene in the controversy over Zinedine Zidane's sending-off in the World Cup final.

Doubts over whether a match official relied on video evidence of Zidane's head butt to Italian defender Marco Materazzi meant the final should be replayed, lawyer Mehana Mouhou said.

"I am going to ask the judge to question all individuals concerned and to reconstruct the end of the refereeing," Mouhou, who is based in the northern town of Rennes, told Reuters on Thursday.

"If it is proved that the fourth referee used video evidence, FIFA can have the final replayed," he said.

Mouhou said he was acting on behalf of a number of clubs and associations whose names he would reveal once the application had been filed with the Tribunal de Grande Instance in Paris, one of France's main civil courts.

French captain Zidane was sent off in extra time in Sunday's final in Berlin after he head-butted Materazzi, apparently in reaction to comments by the defender. Italy went on to take the World Cup after winning the match on penalties.

The incident went unseen by the referee and his two linesmen. The referee was informed about the head butt by the fourth match official who said he had witnessed the action.

French team officials have challenged this version of events, saying the official knew what happened because he saw a video replay.

FIFA rules prevent referees from using video evidence during the course of a match.

"The divergence of opinion means that the justice system should decide," Mouhou said.

"If it is proved that video was used, I will ask for the match to be nullified."

To me you seem pretty stupid so I do not know if you will understand the following, I hope that you will.

Firstly let us take a look at France it is a big country with a population about 60 millions people - that is a lot.

This story about one stupid laywer who tries to do something which cannot be done, which he should know. Therefore do not generalize Frenchmen as somebody who want the final replayed just because one Frenchman wants to.

I hope you did understand it. Though I doubt it.
