France reach the World Cup 2010 thanks to Henry's hand

Share |

France got their ticket to South Africa 2010 thanks to a extremely polemic goal scored by William Gallas. The blues tied 1-1 with Ireland at the Stade de France and won the play offs thanks to their previous victory in Dublin.

The controversial goal came in the minute 103, when forward Thierry Henry controlled the ball with his left hand before passing it to Gallas in front of goal. Unfortunately for Ireland, Swedish referee Martin Hansson and his assistant didn't see the hand.

Previously, Robbie Keane shocked the whole crowd at the minute 32' with a superb goal. But the Irish dreams where just about to be destroyed.

The best thing for the World Cup is that we will be able to watch super stars like Thierry Henry, Frank Ribery and Benzema in South Africa. But the rough reactions for this hand will last long.

Fench coach Raymond Domenech expressed the feeling of millions of french fans: "It was difficult, arduous and at some points, miraculous. It was a win by the skin of our teeth."

It was very disapointing to see Thierry Henry hand ball and then celebrate like he did. As a football supporter I found it to be disgusting that he was able to do what he did. He was one of the greats and that was no example for children arround the world who look up to him. I hope that FIFA would come in and suspend him for all the opening games that France play. I hope France dont make it past the opening round as I believe they dont deserve to be at the world cup especialy the way they got through. From Carlos South Africa.

An obvious cheat

An obvious liar as in it was 'instinctive.' He plays and trains with his feet for years then guides the ball to his feet.

All respect gone

An obvious cheat

People! It's year 2009. The mankind has the potential to set a video-referee on such an important match. How many goals are kicked after some kind of fault? I think at least 1 in every fifth match. Henry has the only misfortune that this happened in such an important match. I love Ireland I was working in Dublin and I am sad about the way they lost the chance to qualify but I am not angry at Henry - he pulled his nation on the WC2010. I say it's the mistake of the system. FIFA, let's create a position of a video-referee to avoid such a mistakes! And don't stop playing Thierry! ;)
