Thierry Henry may have lost a step, but he still has the skills that made him a soccer legend. To prove it, he showed up some samba boys during a pick-up soccer game in Rio de Janiero.
Henry is vacationing in the Brazilian city before the 2013 Major League Soccer season. With preseason training just over the horizon, the New York Red Bulls star played in a Futsal game to keep the blood flowing. Luckily, one of the spectators recorded some highlights.
The 35-year-old displayed an array of flicks and tricks during the clip. Teammates and opponents seemed to enjoy having an international superstar in their midst. Henry took pictures with them after the game.
