Arsenal hero Thierry Henry (NYRB) played keepy-uppy against the Philadelphia Union in pre-season

Here’s a fresh piece of skill from Arsenal hero Thierry Henry which most of you won’t have seen.

With the MLS season gearing up for the new season, clubs in North America are getting ready for the season with a series of warm-up matches at the moment.

This week the New York Red Bulls beat historic rivals the Philadelphia Union 2-1 in a friendly, and during the game the 36-year-old French legend make his opponents look like mannequins as he juggled his way out of danger.

After picking up the ball inside his own half with Union players all around, Henry juggled the ball seven times as he not only kept possession of the ball but also took out an opponent with a chapeu off his knee!

Watch the (sadly grainy) footage of Arsenal hero Thierry Henry playing keepy-uppy against the Philadelphia Union below.
