The goal saw France beat Republic of Ireland in their World Cup play-off.
“Yes, there is a handball but I am not the referee,” Henry admitted.
“I didn’t deliberately do it , but it was handball.
“I’m in the box, there are two defenders in front of me. The ball bounced off my hand, the referee did not see it and I played on.
“It doesn’t change anything to the fact that I’m happy we have qualified.”
