Henry will miss European opener

Henry will not be ready for the start of Arsenal's season
Arsenal captain Thierry Henry will miss the first leg of the Champions League qualifier on 8 or 9 August because of a lack of fitness.

Boss Arsene Wenger feels the tie is too soon for the striker, who has missed pre-season training after playing for France in the World Cup final.

Arsenal are likely to face Dinamo Zagreb, who lead Ekranas 4-1 after their first-leg match.

The Gunners will also be without keeper Jens Lehmann, who is suspended.

Wenger confirmed to the club website: "Jens is suspended and Thierry will be short as well."

He added that Henry will not return to the club until 2 August - only one week before the Gunners kick off in Europe.
