FIFA Dead Against Replays

Most football fans the world over are well aware that FIFA President Sepp Blatter is not in favour of video replays at live games to assist the referee, and there are many fans, players and coaches who would agree with him.

What is astounding is the fact that FIFA would go so far as to demand the removal of the footage posted on You Tube of the Equatorial Guinea player actually catching the ball as it rebounded off the post in their game against Australia. Then she calmly dropped the ball and the goalkeeper picked it up and played on.

All of the officials unbelievably to all inside the stadium and at home on television missing the infringement.

If a player had missed an open goal, and been embarrassed in front of millions, would the World body be so quick to protect the player?
