Thierry Henry rolled back the years for France on Tuesday night by combining superbly with Zinedine Zidane to score a “no-look” goal as the France ’98 squad defeated an All-Star 98 side

The 1998 World Cup winners reunited at Paris on Tuesday night to defeat an all-star side led by former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

France boss Aime Jacquet elected the very same starting line-up that was used in their opening game twenty years ago when they defeated South Africa 3-0 in Marseille.

Meanwhile, Wenger’s side featured the likes of former greats Edgar Davids, Samuel Eto’o, Hristo Stoitchkov and Christian Vieri.

But it was Henry who stole the headlines with a  brilliant equaliser in the 22nd minute.

The Arsenal legend pulled off an audacious no-look pass to Zidane, who then passed the back to Henry to curl it into the bottom corner of the goal.

As part of his football aspirations, Jamaican sprint legend Usain Bolt came off the bench to participate in the match after his appearance in Sunday’s Soccer Aid match at Old Trafford.

Zinedine Zidane scored France’s second goal with a superb free-kick.
