    Posted: 04 Jul 2013 at 4:35pm

The Swedish referee who missed a Thierry Henry handball before the goal against Ireland that sent France to the World Cup in 2010 is to quit his full-time post.

"There is no drama in it," Martin Hansson told the Kvallsposten newspaper. "I wanted a job with greater security, workmates and not to stand or fall because of football."

The 42-year-old has been a professional referee since 2009 and said he would continue as an amateur referee.

Hansson faced severe criticism when he failed to see a handball by France's Henry in the lead-up to their extra-time equaliser against Ireland. The draw in the World Cup playoff second leg in Paris sent France to the finals in South Africa.

Hansson has officiated in Sweden's Allsvenskan since 2001 and became one of six full-time referees in 2009. A part-time firefighter even when refereeing, he now has a job with the emergency services.

"It will be like it was before we were employed full-time, when one had a normal job," Hansson told Kvallsposten.

I don't blame the ref.  He was unsighted.  It was so obvious to the linesman.

+ 1. Still don't understand how he escaped all the blame, when the camera angle showed he had a direct view across at it.

11 Irish players ran to him after the ball went in. 11 players can't all be wrong, and were not wrong.

The ref who allowed Maradona's goal v the Brits was banned for life. Hansson was rewarded for his incompetence by going to the WC. We should have been there instead.

Linesman and ref both made  an awfull mess of this. Then again, they could have been on a nice little earner at the time. Who knows, we might find out some day. 
Untill then, no point crying over spilt milk.

no chance.  Remember Anelka's dive a few minutes earlier.  It looked a penalty to me on first viewing.  A bent ref could easily have given that. 

A referee can't give a decision based on the opposing players going nuts.   

It was  a major error but it was an error.  Now Raul Nazare and your neighbours Steve.......

Or maybe if our defenders on the night did their job properly....

Thinking the same myself, if he/they were bent, I doubt it would have went to extra time even.
