In a 2010 World Cup qualifying playoff, France and Ireland set the stage for one of the worst refereeing decisions in football history.
After the first leg ended 1-0 to France in Dublin, all hope seemed lost for the Irishmen.
However, after Robbie Keane made it 1-0 to Ireland in France after 90 minutes, the match was drawn on aggregate and sent to extra time.
13 minutes into extra time, a free kick by Florent Malouda barely missed a wave of players and ended up falling to Thierry Henry on the end line.
Henry crossed it to William Gallas, who headed the ball into the net.
The goal proved to be decisive, sending France to the World Cup finals and Ireland to their homes for the competition.
Immediately after the goal, though, Irish players were running toward the referee (Martin Hansson) and his assistant (Stefan Wittberg), claiming handball.
Replay shows that after Malouda's free kick narrowly missed Squillaci (who had been in an offside position), the ball struck Henry on the arm.
To make matters worse, Henry then controlled the ball with his hand, pushing it back from going out of play and enabling his cross and the subsequent goal.
You can see Shay Given, who got the best look at the play, immediately point to his hand after Henry grabs it, doing so even before Gallas puts the ball in the net.
Incredibly, neither the referee nor his assistant saw the blatant handball and let the goal stand.
Irish appeals did not help the matter, and the goal was counted as if it were any other.
However, if you are looking for karmic retribution, look no further than France's performance in the subsequent World Cup finals.
