FIFA Bought Off Ireland so they Wouldn't Bring a Lawsuit on 2010 French Handball #CrookedFIFA

Now we will slowly get the info on more of this kind of thing happening.
The payment is reported to have been worth five million euros ($5.63 million), but when that figure was put to Delaney, he refused to confirm or deny it, saying he was "bound by confidentiality".

France qualified for the 2010 World Cup at Ireland's expense after Henry blatantly handled the ball as he set up William Gallas for the decisive goal in a play-off match in Paris in November 2009.
So France committed a handball that was missed for whatever reason and FIFA paid Ireland to look the other way instead of challenging them. I wonder how many more of these kick-backs are lurking out there that we haven't discovered yet?
