After Ireland’s Women’s World Cup Play-off, UEFA Lunched n Investigation Over a Chant



Following their Women’s World Cup play-off victory against Scotland, Republic of Ireland players seemed to sing a pro-IRA chant, prompting UEFA to launch an investigation.

Following Tuesday night’s 1-0 triumph at Hampden Park, video of the players reciting the song in the locker room went viral on social media.

Vera Pauw, the manager of the Republic, and the Football Association of Ireland apologized for the event, but the body that governs European football has said it will investigate it further.
According to Article 31(4) of the UEFA disciplinary regulations, a UEFA ethics and disciplinary inspector will look into any possible inappropriate behavior on the part of Republic of Ireland Women’s team players after their match in the second leg of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers play-offs against Scotland on October 11, 2022,” a UEFA statement read.

“Information on this matter will be made available later.”
