Unfortunately I didn’t get to see it live, but thankfully I wasn’t at a pub, like The Banshee, which columnist Kevin Cullen of the Boston Globe describes in his article. I did, though, watch the second leg of the Ireland, France World Cup Qualifier match in it’s entirety on the internet earlier this week.
So, yes, I’ve seen the handball that French great Thierry Henry so undoubtedly committed, which in turn lead to William Gallas’ header, putting the France side even on the scoreboard, but ahead 2-1 on aggregate. Watching it over and over again, not cause I’m a fan of France, but an Irish supporter, one has to wonder if Henry is really to blame.
