Thierry Henry Handball Against Ireland

Henry isn't going to be welcome in Ireland for some time after this blatant handball. William Gallas finishes off an Henry pass after he used his hand to prevent the ball from going out of bounds and then make the pass across the goalmouth to Gallas.


This isn't just some friendly match either, this was for a place in the World Cup in South Africa. I think we'll see instant replay come into play in world soccer very soon. No Irish luck this year though for the boys in green.

They're now calling the handball by Henry The Hand of Fraud and The Hand of Frog. This is what Thierry Henry had to say:

The Barcelona striker said: "The ball hit my hand, I will be honest. It was a handball, you can clearly see it. (Sebastien) Squillaci went to jump with two Irish players, I was behind him and the next thing I know the ball hit my hand.

"It was a handball, but I'm not the ref. I told (the referee) but he said to me the same: 'You are not the ref.'"

Ironically, if Platini's brainchild of having two extra assistants behind the goal, which the Frenchman is trialling in the Europa League, had been in action, Henry's handball would have been detected and the UEFA chief's countrymen prevented from progressing.
