Thierry Henry Handball Sends France To World Cup
French striker Thierry Henry committed a blatant handball against Ireland today in the World Cup Qualifier which led to a goal by William Gallas and sent France to the 2010 World Cup, leaving Ireland’s dreams dashed and Irish football supporters feeling understandably bitter.
The blatant handball by Henry was disgraceful and a horrible way to send Ireland out of the World Cup qualifying. The world will look at this controversial incident and will lose a lot of respect for Thierry Henry, UEFA and FIFA.
What did you think of the incident? Is Thierry Henry a cheat? And what are your thoughts about referees being allowed to use video evidence so they can catch incidents like this that they obviously missed.
