Watch: Henry and Zidane combine to score great goal for France legends

Videos

Former Arsenal hero Thierry Henry combined with ex-Real Madrid icon Zinedine Zidane to score a brilliant goal in a match to celebrate France’s World Cup win in 1998.

Henry and Zidane lined up alongside their fellow World Cup-winning squad to celebrate 20 years since the victory, with the likes of Laurent Blanc, Patrick Vieira and Robert Pires also taking to the field against a FIFA 98 all-stars side.

The match also marked Arsene Wenger’s first appearance in the dugout since he left Arsenal at the end of the season, as he took charge of a FIFA 98 side which featured Edgar Davids, Patrick Kluivert and Usain Bolt.

Henry and co weren’t forgiving to their former boss, though, as the French side ran out 3-2 victors, partly thanks to a moment of brilliance from the Arsenal legend.

The striker strode forward with the ball outside the box, and played a clever fake shot to lay the ball into Zidane’s path, with the former Madrid player and manager returning the pass and Henry finishing well into the bottom corner.
