Sundelrand boss Bruce can understand Henry hand-ball shocker

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce won't condemn Arsenal legend Thierry Henry over his hand-ball for France last week.

Bruce admits he could be supporting one of his Sunderland players if it had happened to them.

He said: "If one of our players had done it and stuck the ball in the net and it had earned us a European place, what would we be saying? 'You naughty boy - you're a cheat?' Or would we be patting him on the back and saying 'well done son'. It's so hard."
