Thierry Henry defeats Cristiano Ronaldo in the vote to decide the Premier League greats


Thierry Henry is the first player to qualify for the Mirror League Football World Cup final.

With the coronavirus pandemic making action on the ground impossible at the moment, we have pitted some of the most beautiful stars ever (post-1992) of English top flight in a World Cup format over the past few weeks, and asking you to vote for the winner.

The great arsenal Henry faced former Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the first of our semi-finals on Tuesday, and it was the Frenchman who won with 56% of the vote.

While Ronaldo’s best days were in Spain with Real Madrid, there is no doubt that the best period in Henry’s career was in the Premier League with the Gunners.

The elegant Frenchman scored 174 league goals in 254 games with the Gunners between 1999 and 2007, before returning for a swan song – and a league goal – for a brief period in the 2011/12 season.

Henry won two Premier League titles and four incredible Golden Boots during his time at the Gunners, while he also twice won the PFA Player of the Year title and was part of the PFA team Premier League of the season six times. .
