Sarkozy meets Henry


PARIS — President Nicolas Sarkozy held a face-to-face meeting with Thierry Henry yesterday after Les Bleus’ humiliating exit from the World Cup turned into a national issue the government has vowed to address.
Sarkozy called for a wholesale review of French soccer after chairing a government meeting.
Henry, who has 123 caps to his name and is France’s most prolific scorer with 51 goals, went straight to the Elysee Palace in an official car escorted by the police after the team landed at Paris Le Bourget business airport.
He entered the presidential palace through a side door far from the photographers and cameramen who were waiting for him at the main entrance. No details of the meeting were immediately released.
