1 © 2014 Nine gems and a handball: Thierry Henry

2 © 2014 Former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry has announced his retirement from football after a glittering two decades in the game. We look at ten memorable moments from his career, from the finest to the less flattering. Henry was born in the tough Parisian suburb of Les Ulis and nurtured at France’s national football centre, alongside the likes of Nicolas Anelka and David Trezeguet. He began his professional career at Monaco, under then manager Arsène Wenger, winning the French league in 1997 Henry failed to score in his first eight games at Arsenal, whom he joined in 1999 after a disappointing stint at Juventus. But he would go on to net 226 goals in 369 appearances for the Gunners over eight seasons, winning seven trophies. It’s hard to pick one goal among so many gems, but the outrageous volley fired past Manchester United’s Fabien Barthez in 2000 is without a doubt football at its finest.

3 © 2014 By then, Henry was both World and European champion, having scored three goals in France’s successful campaign at the Euro 2000. As with the World Cup two years earlier, Henry was not on target in the final, leaving it to his former Monaco teammate David Trezeguet to net the last-gasp winner in the final against Italy. Henry no doubt regretted his handball, not least after France made utter fools of themselves at the World Cup in South Africa, going on a strike before being dumped out of the tournament in the group stage. Days later, Henry announced he was quitting Europe to seek a fresh start in the United States At 33, he joined the New York Red Bulls, where he won two Eastern Conference titles and an MLS Supporters' Shield. But he returned to Arsenal for a two-month loan spell in 2012, in time to score “the most emotional goal of his career” during an FA Cup match against Leeds.
