Henry is closer to heaven after French victory over Brazil

Share |

France surprised everyone when they beat the superfavorite Brazil and qualified for the semifinals, eliminating the Southamerican team. It was one of the most brilliant nights of Zidane, and the goal was scored by... Who else? Thierry Henry.

Now it's amazing to remember that when the World Cup began, France were an ageing collection of has-beens, split by internal arguments and sentimentally accommodating the man formerly known as the greatest Zizou. And in just five games, everything changed.

In fact, they have steadily improved as the tournament has gone on, a progression that culminated with Thierry Henry scoring the winning goal. And this from a player who apparently goes missing in big matches.

But it's fair to say: this is a myth that needs to be dispelled. Along with Ronaldinho, Henry is the best player in the world. He does things that other players just can't. He is one of those different ones.

A converted winger, the French striker played as a lone frontman for much of last season at Highbury, and still managed 33 goals in 44 games, including strikes against Juventus and Real Madrid - which probably just about classify as big derbies.

What's more, he captained a young and inexperienced team to the Champions League final, and displayed a rarely seen loyalty by staying with Arsenal when brighter and more glamorous options were available.

We can say that Henry has arguably been one of the few stars that has done his job in this World Cup. With the confidence of his team growing around him, Henry could make short work of a Portugal defence that could barely contain England's meagre attack, even after Wayne Rooney's red card.
