Henry set for Golden Shoe
Thierry Henry
Henry won the Premiership's Golden Boot with 30 goals
Arsenal's Thierry Henry is on course to win the Golden Shoe award for being the top scorer in the European leagues.

Henry currently leads the standings but the winner will not be decided until mid-June when all the leagues are over.

The striker, who scored 30 goals, would be the first Frenchman to claim the award and the first Premiership player since Kevin Phillips in 1999-2000.

The Golden Shoe is based on a points system, with goals in the minor leagues counting less than in the major ones.

Henry has already won a host of honours in England for his role in Arsenal's unbeaten title-winning season.

He picked up the Premiership's Golden Boot and won the Professional Footballers' Association, Football Writers' and Barclaycard Premiership player of the year awards.

Latest Golden Shoe standings:
1 Thierry Henry, Arsenal (England) Goals: 30 Points: 60
2 Ailton, Werder Bremen (Germany) 28, 56
3 Djibril Cisse, AJ Auxerre (France) 26, 52

  • Goals multiplied depending on "value" of their league. Only the leading five countries in the Uefa rankings are given a multiple value of two.
