Thierry Henry: Sparta Prague 0-2 Arsenal

Thierry Henry equalled then surpassed Ian Wright's Arsenal goalscoring record in one match against Sparta Prague in October of 2005, as the Gunners hero scored scored both goals in a comfortable win over the Czech club.

Henry netted his 185th and 186th goals for Arsenal in the Czech Republic capital, and the first on that Champions League night was a thing of beauty.

Inventively controlling a pass from Kolo Toure, Henry pirouettes, assesses his options, than caresses the ball beautifully with his right foot and into the bottom left corner. Sublime.
