Video: France up to their old tricks again as they score in World Cup play-off with dodgy goal

Not quite in the Henry handball league but…

Are Ukraine going to be calling for a 33rd team tomorrow? Possibly, as they have just been pegged back to 2-2 in their World Cup play-off with Ukraine after a very dodgy goal.

A shot by Johan Cabaye is chested on by Mathieu Valbuena and Karim Benzema slams it home. Problem is, Benzema was fully a yard offside when Valbuena chested it on.

There is still time for Ukraine to get one back but the curse of bad officiating in Paris in these big games, four years and one day on from the Henry handball, seems to have struck again.
