LIAM BRADY has branded FIFA [...]; Short Corner.

LIAM BRADY has branded FIFA president Sepp Blatter (right) a "loose cannon" over his handling of the Republic of Ireland's bid to become the 33rd team at the World Cup finals.

FIFA rejected the FA of Ireland's request to replay the Republic's play-off defeat against France, which was decided by a Thierry Henry handball. And Republic assistant manager Brady expects FIFA to reject the FAI's '33rd team' request at an emergency meeting of their executive committee in Cape Town today.

"That's not going to happen," he said. "He (Blatter) is a bit of a loose cannon, He's an embarrassment to FIFA. We asked that to see what FIFA's reaction was going to be."
