24 football fans have been given a once in a lifetime chance to go to Madrid, Spain to see the final between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.
Henry is one of the most successful strikers in football history, well-known for his time at Arsenal, Henry was part of the Gunners’ historic “Invincible” that went the entire 2003-04 season unbeaten.
Fans can look out on various Heineken social media platforms as there are still tickets that can be won to join Henry for an unmissable viewing experience in Johannesburg.
41-year-old Henry spent eight years at the London club, and under Arsene Wenger becoming the all-time leading scorer at the club with 228 goals.
The French legend also won two FA Cups and was instrumental in getting Arsenal to the 2006 Champions League final where they lost 2-1 to Barcelona.
In 2007, Henry made the switch to the Catalan giants and, amazingly enough, went on to even greater heights.
Two years after signing with the La Liga team, Henry was part of the club’s historic treble-winning side that won the league title, Copa Del Rey and Champions League.
His success was not limited to club football though, winning the 1998 FIFA World Cup, Uefa Euro 2000 and 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup.
He is also Les Bleus record goal scorer amassing and 51 goals in 123 appearances.
Henry has since made the move into management, with stints at Monaco and as assistant coach to the Belgium national team.
