Somewhere the leprechauns are smiling as France was eliminated from 2010 World Cup action. The defending champions ended up finishing at the bottom of Pool A with a single point.
For those of you not familiar with the situation, during qualifying for the 2010 World Cup, it came down to a tie-breaking game between Ireland and France to see who advanced to the Big Show.
In extra time, French striker Thierry Henry emulated the biggest cheater of all, Diego Maradonna, and used a handball in the penalty area to put the ball in the back of the net. And on top of that, two French players were offside. Let's just say that it came close to war. Seriously. LINK to a news story.
