Henry pleased to be through despite controversy

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.”
