Man Utd France captain Evra gets snappy with Irish journo

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra was again asked about France's presence at the World Cup yesterday.

France had optimistic appeals for a late penalty rejected against Uruguay after a Thierry Henry shot hit a defender's lower arm.

Asked by an Irish journalist whether referees are now unsympathetic to France following their notoriously controversial play-off goal against the Republic of Ireland, Evra said: "Why do you keep talking about that?

"It is finished now. It's in the past. We are here.

"I don't know, honestly. I was on the pitch and didn't see the incident. Maybe the referee didn't either."
