Thierry Henry Can't Quit France

France striker Thierry Henry has admitted he considered giving up international football after France’s Euro 2008 exit, but has since changed his mind on the matter.

The Barcelona frontman could not help his side avoid a first round exit after being considered one of the favourites for the title, and was the only person to score a goal in the tournament for Les Bleus.

Henry also refused to allow the blame to fall on manager Raymond Domenech’s shoulders, despite the mentor having his job under review as a result of the side’s poor showing.

Henry said: “This defeat doesn’t change my future.

“Quitting the national team went through my head but I know what is going to happen now. We win or lose all together.

“It’s not only the manager’s problem, even if I know lots of people will talk about him. We had the same manager in the 2006 World Cup final.”
