Anna Segura

Tuesday's game against Inter marked Thierry Henry's 100th appearance for Barca since he signed in the summer of 2007. During that time the French striker has notched up 46 goals.

Debut in 2007

Thierry made his official debut for the club on 26th August 2007 coming off the bench in the opening game of the 2007/08 league season against Racing Santander which ended rather disappointingly in a goalless draw.

47 games in first season

Key part of Treble winners

Although he missed the end of the league season with injury he was available for the Rome Final against Manchester United and finally won his first Champions League winners medal. In 40 games in the 2008/09 season he scored 25 goals.


Thierry Henry's first goal for the club came on 19th September 2007 against Olympic Lyon in the Champions League and since then he's gone on to bag 45 more, averaging 2.17 goals a game in a Barca shirt.

Debut for Jonathan dos Santos
If Tuesday's game was a landmark for Henry, it will also be notched up as an important date for the youngster Jonathon Dos Santos, who was brought on late for Andres Iniesta to make his Champions League debut.
