Thierry Henry rolled back the years as Frances 1998 World Cup-winning heroes reunited to beat an All Star 98 XI 3-2.

Twenty years on from their triumph, Zinedine Zidane, Thierry Henry and Vincent Candala were on target to defeat Arsene Wengers star-studded side.

Fernando Morientes and Gaizka Mendieta scored for the visitors in Paris, but undoubtedly the moment of the match came from Arsenal legend Henry.

Henrys 22th-minute equaliser came after he recreated his famous no-look pass – you know, that one he debuted against Middlesbrough back in 2006.

Zidane played the ball back into the path of Henry and the iconic striker found the corner of the net with a delicate finish.

Zidane, who stepped down as Real Madrid manager last month, scored Frances second goal just after half-time.
