THIERRY HENRY showed class is permanent with a stunning ‘weaker foot’ free-kick during Belgium training.
The Frenchman bent a delightful left-footed effort in from the edge of the box and Manchester City ace Kevin De Bruyne was amazed by his talent.
Thierry Henry scored a sublime free-kick in Belgium training
The Frenchman bent the free-kick into the top corner with his weaker foot
Henry, 43, lined up for the direct free-kick with the ball around 25 yards from goal.
And the Arsenal legend casually approached before curling the ball up and over the wall and into the top right corner.
The keeper remained rooted to the spot as ‘cool as a cucumber’ Henry just turned away and nonchalantly strolled toward the camera.
A laughing Romelu Lukaku approached and began dragging the Premier League icon back toward the changing room.
Lukaku said: “Come man, record top scorers don’t need this.”
The hilarious footage then cut to De Bruyne walking off the pitch joking about the quality of the France legend.
He said: “That’s the issue we’ve been training for half an hour, we scored a few and he just goes with his left and killed us.
“And we have a game tomorrow! This guy has been retired for ten years. He killed my country man.”
Henry returned to his Belgium role after quitting Montreal in February.
He left the post in Canada after a year in charge because of the pandemic’s impact on his family life.
The Frenchman served as a second assistant in Belgium’s 2018 World Cup campaign, sometimes embarrassing players in training sessions, as they reached the semi-finals.
Henry was then promoted to become Martinez’s No2 before accepting the job as Monaco head coach in October 2018 but he lasted just three months.
