I’m hoping to see a new kind of foot-hand-ball in South Africa 2010.
FIFA says its okay for footballers to play with their hands as long as they don’t use their hands to prevent a goal. Fantastic!
This is what I gathered from the “Henry will not be punished” report. He was not seen by the referee and he didn’t use his hands to prevent a goal. According to FIFA, he only used his hands to aid scoring a goal. AND it’s ok to do that, they said.
So there you go-al footballers. Score with your hands but please don’t stop the ball from going into the nets with your hands.
Goodluck to the best foot-hand-ball team in South Africa. Let the celebration begin…!
