10 Biggest Ever World Cup Cheats

10. Thierry Henry vs Ireland 2009

Though this wasn€™t actually at the World Cup finals, it almost certainly cost Ireland their place at South Africa 2010. France won the first leg of the play-off 1-0 in Dublin but Robbie Keane€™s 33rd minute header in Paris forced the match into extra time. Ireland were looking the stronger side before Henry patted the ball back into play at cut the ball back for William Gallas to make it 2-1. The Frenchman knew that his act was so outrageous that he even admitted it to Ireland defender Richard Dunne €“ after the full-time whistle, mind.
So France progressed to the World Cup but thankfully some justice was done as they returned home after the group stage having only collected one point.
