Wait a minute Henry admits its a hand ball?

In the World Cup qualifying game between France and Ireland there was a controversial goal taken as a score in the extra minutes of the game scored by Thierry Henry. This was one of the best games the Irish have played and also one of their most important since October 2005. This is only one of the few controversial goals made in the world cup history. In 2002 the US faced Germany and made them lose 1-0 and sending the German squad onto the semi-finals. Also the most controversial one is by far "The Hand of God," made by Diego Maradona in the 1986 World cup. Soon after the win, the Internet flooded with pictures of Henry being burned and bashed with words. Some even from French supporters saying that they are ashamed of this victory but that they are happy that they won and still are in for the World Cup. Henry even admitted that it was a hand ball.

Ok so we have another hand ball issue but this is not small. I agree with the thing that Henry said being honest about it but still i would say its good cause the refs didn't call him on it. Why did they not call well its plain and simple to get.... They didn't see what happened and from their position it looked legit so they can't do anything about it. I have played soccer and was on my high school soccer team and yeah i was called on some "crappy" calls but again its not anything i can control the refs call what they see and thats final. I think that the whole thing is still very controversial but again its all about how the game is played, some calls are good and some are bad but in the end there had to be a winner and a loser so its all fair i suppose.
