Thierry Henry
Club:Arsenal
Position:Forward

It does not bear thinking about for other teams that, at the last World Cup, Thierry Henry was not even used to playing as an out-and-out striker.

Despite having played as a winger at Monaco, he still finished as his country's top scorer with three goals at France 1998.

It was only when Arsene Wenger splashed out 10m to lure him from Juventus to Arsenal in 1999 that people really began to see the best of Henry as a goalscorer.

Wenger used him up front at Highbury, where his blistering pace and spectacular goals ensured he stood out as one of the most dangerous strikers in the game.

His only fault is the wastefulness in front of goal that results from his desire to do everything with a flourish. In short - you do not see Henry score too many tap-ins.
