Seen by many as one of, or simply the best, player to have played in the Premier League, Henry is considered one of the best strikers of his generation.

|Date of birth||17 August 1977|
|Place of birth||Les Ulis, France|
During eight seasons with Arsenal, Henry became a prolific striker and Arsenal’s all-time leading scorer with 228 goals, winning two league titles, three FA Cups and, as club captain, leading Arsenal to the 2005-06 Champions League final.
Henry left for FC Barcelona in 2007, realizing an historic six-trophy haul in 2009 with La Liga / Copa del Rey / Supercopa de Espana / Champions League / UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
Henry became the first ever French player to play in four World Cups, winning the competition in 1998 and the European Championship in 2000. He also broke the goal scoring record for France (51) and became the second most capped rench player (123) behind Thuram.
Despite his magnificent success with Arsenal and France, Henry was, incredibly, never awarded the Ballon d’Or, coming second and third in 2003 and 2006 respectively.
