The retired French star Thierry Henry, who works as an assistant coach for the Belgian national football team, dazzled the players present in the training, after he executed a direct free kick with his left foot into the net in a distinctive way, reminding him of his distinguished goals during his busy career in the stadiums.
And the Belgian national team published, on its official account on Twitter, a video of the snapshot that dazzled Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne and Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku, achieving more than 2.5 million views.

Lukaku ran towards Henry after taking the kick, as he joked to him: “Come on man, record holders don’t need that, come on man come in.”
In turn, De Bruyne expressed his astonishment at the skill of the Frenchman that he still enjoys despite his retirement, saying: “We were training to take free kicks for half an hour and we managed to score a few, and Henry comes with his left foot to kill us all, the man retired 10 years ago, he eliminated the My self-confidence”.
And the official account of the European Championship (Euro 2020) re-published the video on Twitter, yesterday, Monday, and jokingly wrote: “Henry shows the Belgian players how to take free kicks, and then he needs to be saved by Lukaku!”
The clip, on the Euro 2020 account, achieved more than 300,000 views within several hours.
