Thierry Henry Rolls Back The Years With Trademark Free-Kick In Belgium Training, Leaves Lukaku & De Bruyne Stunned


Thierry Henry has rolled back the years in Belgium training by scoring a trademark free-kick, which even left Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku stunned.

Former Arsenal forward Henry has scored the second most free-kicks in Premier League history and he never lost the technique.

He is currently an assistant coach with Belgium and decided to hit the pitch for a training session ahead of Monday’s Euro 2020 clash with Finland.

Despite being 43-years-old, Henry bent an incredible effort round the training dummies and into the top-right corner.

Lukaku immediately darted over to Henry and jokingly dragged him off the pitch.

He said: “Come on man, record topscorers don’t need this! Go in, go in…”

De Bruyne, who knows a thing or two about set pieces, also couldn’t stay quiet after what he’d seen.

“That’s the issue we’ve been training for about half an hour,” the Manchester City man begun.

“He just goes with his left and kills us! And we have a game tomorrow!”

Lukaku then chimed in again with: “This guy retired for 10 years and killed my whole country, man!”


It’s the arrogant walk away for me…I really miss this man

Left foot, have some respect. These players are so lucky having Henry with them as a coach.

😲🀯 Weak foot, top corner. He’ll always be on another level.

That Henry hit it with his weaker foot makes it even more insane. How can you be THAT good at football?

Belgium sit top of Group B after winning their opening games against Russia and Denmark respectively.

Do you think Belgium have a chance of winning Euro 2020?
