Holland defender Ooijer: It was handball
Holland defender Andre Ooijer has reportedly admitted that he handled a shot from France striker Thierry Henry in their Euro 2008 Group C clash.
The Blackburn Rovers defender is quoted on the website of Dutch magazine Sportweek as saying that the French should have been awarded a penalty in the incident.
Had referee Herbert Fandel ruled against Ooijer, it would have given France the chance to bring the scores level at 1-1, in a match they eventually capitulated in to lose 4-1.
Ooijer told Sportweek: "There should have been a penalty from Thierry Henry's shot.
"I stopped the ball with my hand.
"Without that there would have certainly been a goal."
