Thierry Henry

His football career started with Monaco youth ranks under manager Arsene Wenger, from where he moved to Juventus where he majorly played as a left winger. Post-2000, Henry got converted into a striker and became one of the most feared players in Europe. He then moved to Arsenal where he won Premier League two times, and then to Barcelona where the team captured the Champions League Trophy in 2008-2009. Henry had a fantastic career with France as he won the FIFA World Cup, Euro Championship in 2000, FIFA Confederation Cup in 2003 and also reached the finals of FIFA World Cup 2006.

Fabien Barthez

Fabien Barthez is a player underrated by many football fans, dismissed as a clown that can only be relied upon to eventually make a mistake. While it is true that he had his moments, what shouldn’t be forgotten is his outstanding record as a goalkeeper. He won the Premier League with Manchester United in 2000-01 and 2002-03, UEFA Champions League with Marseille in 1992-93 and 1998 FIFA World Cup with France.

Throughout France’s victorious World Cup campaign, Barthez was an integral part of the team, letting in just two goals in the seven matches Les Bleus played. He was given the Yashin award for those performances, as well as being named European Goalkeeper of the Year, an award he would win again in 2000.
