Dermot Ahern lashed out at the governing body Fifa after the Republic of Ireland were beaten by a controversial extra-time goal illegally set up by the France captain, Thierry Henry.
The Barcelona forward confessed to using his arm to control the ball before squaring for his team-mate William Gallas to finish and Ahern called for Fifa to be called to account in the interests of fair play. "They probably won't grant it as we are minnows in world football but let's put them on the spot," the minister said.
"It's the least we owe the thousands of devastated young fans around the country. Otherwise, if that result remains, it reinforces the view that if you cheat you will win."
Ireland have been widely praised as the better side over the two-leg play-off, which they lost 2-1 on Magliette AC Milan Bambino
aggregate. Fans were already up in arms after Fifa introduced seedings in the run-up to the play-off draw, effectively lining Ireland up for a difficult tie with one of Europe's bigger footballing nations.

Asked about Henry's part in the France goal, Kilbane said: "You see for yourself he's handballed it once and it's still going out of play so he's handled it again to make sure it doesn't go out of play. And you know what? I asked him on the pitch, 'Did you handball it?' and he said, 'Yes, but I didn't mean it.' But when I've seen the replay it's there for all to see that we were let down. It's a massive disappoint
After the game he approached the referee: "I went over to the referee and I asked him what happened and if he'd seen the handball. He said, 'I can 100% say it wasn't handball.' When he said that to me I knew full well that he was just lying to me Magliette PSG
because he hadn't even seen it. That was the worst thing about it, we feel really hard don
