Thierry Henry gets meme treatment after France defeats Belgium

Thierry Henry was caught between a rock and a hard place during Tuesday’s World Cup semifinal pitting France against Belgium, and many got in a good laugh at his expense.

Henry, a French football legend but now an assistant coach for Belgium, saw his new side fall 1-0 to France in the pivotal match. With the French making their first World Cup final since Henry led them there in 2006, Twitter had some jokes about the mixed feelings that he must have been experiencing.

Henry, France’s all-time leading goalscorer and a key figure in their only World Cup victory in 1998, has been an assistant for Belgium since 2016.

The 40-year-old got taunted before the match by one of France’s current stars, but he probably isn’t too torn up about his beloved home country advancing to a World Cup final, even if it came at the expense of his present-day team.
