Thierry Henry was called up by Steven Gerrard to take part in the All-Star Charity game at Anfield on Sunday as the Liverpool man took on former team-mate Jamie Carragher’s XI.
Many stars were present including former Liverpool strikers Luis Suarez and Fernando Torres – with the game finishing 2-2, but Henry couldn’t bow out without creating a few headlines.
Spearheading Team Gerrard in the first half, Henry tormented Carragher one last time as he bamboozled him with a sensational pass which reminded many of his playing days.
