Thierry Henry’s Left Hand

World Soccer power France got their game winning and World Cup clinching goal in the final minutes over underdog Ireland last night. Henry received a free kick on the goal line crossed it over to Gallas who knocked it in the net to send them to South Africa. This all sounds fine and good, but the only problem is Henry received that free kick with his left hand. The ball was out of reach of Henry’s body as it was heading out of bounds for a goal kick when Henry saved it with his hand to keep the play going.

The whole team and country of Ireland argued and showed their disagreement towards the refs who missed an obvious call. The refs were having none of it. In a sport that so many fans live and die with every pass and minute that goes by, this call is kinda a big deal. If this happens in America, you know the first thing on everyone’s mind is Replay? Not sure what the paper’s and media is saying in Ireland or the rest of the World where soccer is king, but certainly Ireland would like some sort of explanation to how Henry got away with what he did.
