David Beckham and Thierry Henry turn back the clock

Thierry Henry New York

They used to bang in the goals for Manchester United and Arsenal, and over in the USA they are still doing it, spectacularly.

If David Beckham was keen to show Stuart Pearce what he was missing by not selecting him in the Great Britain Olympic squad, he is going about it the right way.

He has responded to his non-selection on the pitch, scoring a superb 35-yard strike for LA Galaxy against the Portland Timbers in midweek.

He is not the only ex-Premier League and La Liga star to tear it up in the last week. Arsenal legend Thierry Henry scored a truly spectacular volley against Chicago Fire.

We've got both goals for you here, and they are both well worth checking out, in perfect video quality.
