FIFA would be setting a serious precedent if they had taken action against Henry. You would have seen every contentious decision being referred to national FA's, UEFA and FIFA going forward with bans left, right and centre, making the referee's judgement basically obsolete.

Not saying what happened was right, but it should have been dealt with there and then by the referee. If he misses it, then unfortunately that's the way it is.

Rules state that post match sanctions can be handed out if the referee misses the incident. What you are suggesting is if ref misses incident then you should get away with it? Then players can go around doing what the want once ref doesn't see it like stick the head on someone when ref is other end of the pitch and linesman isn't watching. Only serious infringements can be dealt with after a game if a ref misses it.

Henry got away with it because handball isn't considered a serious infringment by the rules as they stand.

FIFA and blatter got what they wanted all along France in the finals and can sweep it all under the carpet, cheat by making play offs seeded then cheat again to win the game cheaters do prosper after all

I agree with you - Henry should be given a yellow card retroactively.

I'm just suprised FIFA and Blatter didn't organise an open top bus parade through out Europe to honour him.

Since he 'single handily' got France into world cup

Justice done indeed, otherwise there wouldnt be anyone left to play on Saturday.

As someone said, handball is a yellow card offence, what could Henry possibly have been charged with?

The resulting goal by Gallas is a different matter, but it's already been decided there will be no replay.

Depending on the context of the handball it can be a red card!! If a player handles the ball to prevent a goal he can be sent off so doing it to create a goal is just as bad

I think it should be treated similarly to drink driving offences.

Get away scot free if no one catches you.
Get a yellow card and 12 month ban if you get caught.
Get a Red card if you get caught causing an accident or retrespectively and jail.

I think the fact the outcome of this possibly should have resulted in a retrospective red card, but nothing more. To be fair, that would be harsh. A yellow card is meaningless, so just as has happened, he's got away scott free.

He cheated.... it happens every week.
