Video: Republic of Ireland robbed of World Cup place by Thierry Henry
Offside and handball, but the goal stands
If I was Irish I would be waking up this morning a very bitter man. The Republic of Ireland had a place at next year’s World Cup snatched away from them by this horrendous piece of refereeing. Despite the fact that two players were offside, at least one very much interfering with play, and Thierry Henry controlled the ball with his hand, the goal was allowed to stand.
