Watch: Santi Cazorla recreates Thierry Henry Arsenal wonder goal
By Amir Mir
Santi Cazorla successfully recreated Thierry Henry’s famous wonder goal against Manchester United in 2000.
Arsenal legend Henry scored the dipping, swerving strike against Sir Alex Ferguson’s United sixteen years ago, which made a fool of goalkeeper Fabien Barthez.
Cazorla was taking part in BT Sport’s GoalsRecreated challenge, where current footballers attempt famous goals from the past and he had the opportunity to recreate Henry’s wonder goal.
The 31-year-old Arsenal midfielder nailed the effort in his second attempt in one what is one of the most famous Premier League goals in history.
At first Cazorla failed his attempt, but successfully recreated the effort moments later, which delighted the Spaniard.
