Because of Thierry Henry’s alleged hand-ball cheat there has been suggestions of a replay by Fifa and the French Football.
Full-back teammate, Patrice Evra, came to the defense of Henry’s hand-ball criticism and said that his teammate should be adored rather than looked down upon because he took part in guiding his team to South Africa, stating the issue, “That is madness.”
Former manager Arsene Wenger had this to say of the matter, “What is terrible for the referee is that he gave the goal knowing something was not regular, yet he got no help,” adding, “From the unanimous reaction of Ireland he knew something was not right. He asked for some help from the linesman who could not give him help.”
