GGG12: Thierry Henry v Real Madrid, 2006

It's time to reveal the Gunners' Greatest 50 Goals - as voted for by Arsenal's fans.

Thierry Henry pops up once again in our countdown with the goal which clinched arguably our finest away win in Europe.

Before Arsenal arrived at the Bernabeu Stadium in February 2006, no English side had beaten Real Madrid on their own patch. Arsène Wenger's young side overcame a crippling injury list to change all that.

A Day In Time - Feb 21, 2006

Henry's moment of magic arrived two minutes into the second half. Cesc Fabregas kicked things off, capitalising on a poor touch from Ronaldo and finding his French team-mate inside the centre circle. From that moment on it was all about Henry.

He held off the back-tracking Ronaldo and skipped past Alvaro Mejia and Guti before racing into the area and muscling past Sergio Ramos. Henry planted an angled shot past Iker Casillas and into the far corner of the net. It was stunning even by Henry's high standards.
