Thierry HENRY's first goal

Last week Thierry HENRY scored his 400th professionnal goal and made the buzz with the Henrying figure ! Nobody can escape to this goal and all the Henrying parody. But do you remember the first of this 400 goals ? Have a look back 18 years ago. In 1990 HENRY played for local team in his native city (near Paris), Monaco sent scout to watch Henry, then at the age of 13 in a match. Henry scored all six goals as his side won 6–0. Catalano asked him to join Monaco without even attending a trial first. Catalano requested that Henry complete a course at the elite Clairefontaine academy, and despite the director's reluctance to admit Henry due to his poor school results, he was allowed to complete the course and joined Arsène Wenger's Monaco as a youth player. Subsequently, Henry signed professional forms with Monaco, and made his professional debut on 31 August 1994, in a 2–0 loss against Nice. Although Wenger suspected that Henry should be deployed as a striker, he put Henry on the left wing because he believed that his pace, natural ball control and skill would be more effective against full-backs than centre-backs. But Thierry HENRY scored his first goal in proffessional team only at the end of his first season 1994- 95. The 29th april 1995, 34 round of French League Monaco received Lens. Thierry HENRY was not a starter and watched on the bench the first goal of the game by his danish teammate Dan Petersen. But after only 22 minutes, french international MicKaël Madar is injured. Wenger launched Henry in the game and after only 4 minutes he scored his first professionnal goal. And another one just before halftime. Have a look back on this two first goals of his professionnal career :
