FIFA will today face Thierry Henry and discuss his infamous handball against the Republic of Ireland.

The Frenchman's handball, which led to the winning goal for France, led to all sorts of arguments and disputes, FIFA even agreeing to look at video evidence.

What will happen to Henry however is unsure, he maybe fined or banned. If a ban was put in place he could miss matches in the World Cup in South Africa.

The Football Association of Ireland were so infuriated with the goal, they demanded a replay and even said they should go to the World Cup as the 33rd team.
