Robbie Keane hits out at FIFA
Robbie Keane has hit out at FIFA, accusing them of preferring to see the bigger teams qualify for the World Cup. The controversial comments are sure to anger many at the governing body. Keane was disappointed with France's successful qualification after Thierry Henry appeared to handball in the run up to the equalising goal against Ireland on Wednesday.
Robbie Keane commented: âItâs an easy decision to do the seedings, isnât it? They are all Âprobably clapping their hands right now.
âMichel Platini sitting up there on the phone to [FIFA Âpresident] Sepp Blatter... they are probably texting each other, delighted with the result.
âFrance were in there and Germany at one point had a chance of being in the play-offs as well. Two massive countries.
âThere was no way, in a million years, it was going to be a fair draw â and it wasnât.â
