Mexico Day 13: Thierry Henry Does it Again

By Frank Della Femina

Riviera Maya - He did it again.

Thierry Henry showed off some last-minute heroics once again for his former club, Arsenal, with a strong finish off a cross in stoppage time to help the Gunners steal a 2-1 win over Sunderland.

The goal marks Henry's third since rejoining the North London club on loan back in early January. On Friday, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Henry's loan would be completed on Feb. 16, as the Frenchman is expected back state side by Feb. 17.

“I would have loved him to stay two more weeks but he has to go back. He is captain of Red Bulls. Just to appear on the first day of the season would be unfair to them. We accepted at the start that we would release him on February 16. So we respect our word,” Wenger said Friday.
