Reporting on the World Cup from Brazil, legendary Arsenal striker meets a fellow Invincible - Gilberto Silva, formerly of Brazil.

Former Arsenal and Barcelona striker Thierry Henry, who has to date netted 352 goals from 760 games in all competitions at club-level as a professional, has swapped the pitch for a punditry panel as the 36-year-old joined fellow European great Clarence Seedorf on the BBC's analytical team for the ongoing FIFA World Cup tournament in Brazil.

It is not all business for Henry, though, as whilst in Rio de Janeiro he has managed to link up with a fellow core member of the famous Invincible side Arsene Wenger built in the 2003-04 season - Gilberto Silva.

Dubbed an invisible wall, Gilberto represented Arsenal for a six-year period and whenever he was absent from the starting XI, Arsenal's stability at the back suffered. A World Cup winner in 2002, Gilberto won 93 caps for Brazil.

Henry has been on excellent form for the BBC. He said that tactically-speaking, Daley Blind was superb for the Netherlands during the 5-1 destruction of Spain and was more deserving of the man of the match ball than goal-scorers Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben.

The Frenchman was also one of the most vocal supporters for starting Raheem Sterling, marveled at the technical finesse of current France striker Karim Benzema and defended Brazil international Fred, who has been mocked for his flop status as a striker following in the foot-steps of Ronaldo, Romario and Pele.
