If there is one solo player who never won the most coveted price in world football then it will be no other than the France international, the striker perhaps never cemented his name among the true greats in the sports arena.

The man known for championing the era of the invincibles never really left up to his reputation as an astute elite striker in an era dominated by discipline the France international like his Junior Mario Ballotelli was known for his temperament on and off the field.

Among his countless accolades is the World Cup medal, two-time English champion, Confederation winner, Spanish Super Cup winner on two occasions, he won the FA Cup on three occasions, Uefa Super Cup Winner, French and Spanish Champion, Fifa Club World Cup winner, Champions League winner, European cup winner, SZix time top scorer in England with Arsenal.

Perhaps the biggest loss or robbery ever of a superb player to have missed the Ballon d’Or.

He will be best remembered in 2006 for handily thumping out Spanish Champion Real Madrid from the Champions League after a sublime solo run.

In the 2001/2002 season, Thierry Henry scored 24 goals in the league, emerging as the league’s top goal scorer. He also led Arsenal to a double where they won the Barclays Premier League and the FA Cup. The following year he scored another 32 goals for Arsenal in all competitions together, leading his club to another FA Cup trophy where he was named the man of the match in the finals. In 2003/2004, Henry was the Premier League’s top scorer with a fantastic 30 goals, helping Arsenal win the title without losing even a single match. This earned them the title The Invincibles, a feat last achieved by Preston North End (1888/1889) 115 years before Arsenal did it again in 2003/2004.
