Legal challenge to World Cup result
A French lawyer plans to mount a legal challenge to the World Cup final result to establish whether the expulsion of Zinedine Zidane was within the rules.
Mehana Mouhou said he intended to ask a Paris court to question the fourth official to ascertain whether he had illegally used videotape to check what had happened.
"If a judge determines that illegal methods were used, the proper consequences must be drawn," he said. "That means that Zidane should never have been sent off and it would be impossible to predict what the match result would have been and it should be replayed."
Mouhou said he was acting on behalf of "several football clubs."
