Irish deserve “some kind of compensation”

Fifa president Sepp Blatter admits that the Football Association of Ireland deserves some measure of compensation arising from last month’s controversial World Cup exit.

Blatter was speaking in South Africa ahead of Friday evening’s finals draw, in which Ireland’s conquerors France are one of eight unseeded sides in the European pot.

And while he indicated that any award would not be financial, the Fifa chief conceded that the FAI deserves some recompense.

He said: “If you started to compensate teams not qualified you will have others coming to us but you are right when you see this kind of matter where the whole world has seen foul play, then maybe there could be some kind of compensation for Ireland.

“We will look at that. Yesterday, Ireland withdrew their demands [to be accommodated at next summer’s finals as an extra participant] and they asked to meet with us and we will do that next week.”
