Thierry Henry considered ending his international career, reported French sports daily L’Equipe on Monday, following the uproar after the striker’s blatant handball in a France-Ireland match on Nov. 18 that gave France their ticket to South Africa.

“Oh yes,” the France captain was quoted in Monday’s French sports daily L’Equipe as saying when asked whether retiring from international soccer had crossed his mind.

“Friday, when it all went too far, I was very worked up.”
