I watched France vs Spain last night. On my tv, at least, Puyol’s hand connected with Henry’s chest – in the way you do when you’re fending someone off. Henry dropped to the floor clutching his face, as if shot. The referee blows and awards a free-kick to France. France score.
I used to admire Henry for his skill. I don’t any more. He , like so many other so called highly skilled, professional footballers, cheats. That is not admirable. It is sad.
