West Brom striker Cox: Irish players inspired by Henry hand-ball

West Bromwich Albion striker Simon Cox says memories of Thierry Henry's hand-ball are still strong for Republic of Ireland players.

Cox says Ireland will use the memory of Thierry Henry's handball to try to win a place at Euro 2012.

Ireland face Estonia in a two-leg play-off two years after Henry's handball led to the France goal that denied them a place at the World Cup and the West Bromwich striker said: "We will take that as inspiration to win."
