There was no outrage then and the Irish did not offer a replay. Nobody accused FIFA or Platini of helping the Irish.I say get over it. This is not the first time a goal has been scored after a hand ball and it will not be the last. The Irish had 180 minutes to score but they did not…

Unfortunately for Ireland, cheating is part of the game and there is nothing that can be done about it.

The decision is final.But I would like to know why FIFA officials did not suspend Henry for playing the ball with his hand. This is ungentlemanly conduct besides a handball that gave an advantage to his team to procure a goal. The referee in charge should also be suspended. Whilst the assistant referee should also be suspended since he failed to see the offside position of the french player before the hands of Henry. Why do we have the fourth official – is his work only to control the coaches and showing the number of the substitutes.

Hopefully the referee know that this incident has been heard by all people in the world, then what will be done by the referee and his assistant. Of course this is not a joke.

We have technology that proves what has happen.What good if we cant make use of this now. All teams should demand and fifa should produce a new rule, where teams are given 2 video referals a game. This should come in before 2010 world cup. It happens in cricket and rugby league, then why cant in soccer. No wonder more and more people prefer rugby then soccer nowadays

I am not saying that Henry is an overall is cheat, but he acted in my opinion in the heat of the moment and that ruled his head. There had to be a replay or Fifa is not worth anything anymore. They are more like a corrupt government run on pity interests. The Irish are absolutely right that they should be a game, and if the French support fair play they than should come forward and welcome one, but I doubt it. It is said when reading all the comments on Platini simply because he has become an enigma. We all remember him as the great player that he was, but as Uefa president he is a joke.

The difference being that I watched the match in France, where I live with the French supporters and I’m English.When this incident happened with “Thierrygate” Henry keeping the ball in play during extra time the mood changed after they celebrated the to the realization that it was handball, to shock! They were happy that France won obviously, but as I discussed with the locals they agreed that this was very bad for the game as he must have known that there are so many cameras in the ground that it would have been picked up later. Would this have been different if it had happened to England instead of France, in the English pub?What is this telling our children. It’s hard enough coaching as it is without this happening. It will happen again until the TV replay system is brought into play. Rugby & cricket to mention two sports use it and football at the moment has a bizarre fact that my mum can watch a replay of the incident with seconds but the referee who makes the decision knows nothing about it.There was a quote saying “Don’t blame Henry”. Don’t make me laugh, who’s fault is it then?Both sets of fans, clubs, teams, players, management want the correct decisions at the end of the day so use the technology.http://jonnyontheball.blogspo t.com/

Also, sad to see companies who use chetaers to endorse thier products continue to do so – it’s shows that standards in all sorts of every organsiation are poor and it’s all about the money at the end of the day.
