image for Ireland: we deserve a place in the final!
Ireland's shock exit from the World Cup

Ireland have demanded that FIFA give them a place in the World Cup final next year, despite the place already being reserved for the two teams who do best in next year's competition.

A green-clad spokesman for the Irish team said, "we deserve it ye know. We worked hard, and we have to compete against Henry's handball and all that ye know. If only he hadn't gotten that handball goal, it would have been 1-1 at the end of the match, and we would have needed a replay to decide the result, or extra-time. So I tink we deserve to be at the finals in Sout Africa next year, but not at de group stage.

"We've already proven we're equal to France so basically the whole World Cup should play out to see who wins, and then we get to play the winners to decide who wins the whole competition. That would be fair on Ireland, we might actually stand a fricking chance for a change."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
