Barely commented on it, spent the whole time ranting about Shay Given for letting the ball drop in the middle of his ****ing six yard box tbf. The fact that Henry's handball was done with the intention of tricking the referee whereas Suarez's wasn't trying to fool anyone (and unlike Henry, did what every footballer in the world would have done) make it slightly different. There's something sneaky about that which people in the UK seem to particularly dislike. But even so, the fact that I don't like it when it happens against the team that I support
entirely justifies the act, frankly.
As for siding with Uruguay, it's kinda a response to everyone hating on them so much. Great game that. Well done Netherlands
