The Frenchman was part of Belgium’s coaching staff between 2016-2018 and returned to his post ahead of Euro 2020.

It was during Euro 2020 where Henry proved he still possesses ridiculous technical ability.

Belgium posted a video on their social media channels of Henry, who was 43 at the time, leaving Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku gobsmacked after some brilliance. View it below…

The video starts with Henry standing over a free-kick. He proceeds to smash the ball into the top corner with his ‘weaker’ left foot, leaving the goalkeeper rooted to the spot.

Belgium’s players can’t believe what they are seeing and go wild.

“Come on. Record top goal scorers don’t need this. Come on, man! Go in, go in!” Lukaku says while guiding Henry indoors.

De Bruyne then bemoans: “That’s the issue we’ve been training for half-an-hour and scored a few. He just goes with his left and killed us! And we have a game tomorrow! He killed my whole confidence!”

Lukaku can then be seen adding: “This guy retired for 10 years. He killed my whole country, man!”

Henry retired nearly 10 years ago and is well into his forties but he’s still got it.
