Toronto's Brockie: Class of ex-Arsenal ace Henry, former Everton star Cahill shows

New Zealand international Jeremy Brockie got the chance to play against two absolute quality players recently.

The Wellington Phoenix striker, on loan with Toronto FC in MLS, played in his side's 0-0 draw with New York Red Bulls last weekend and admitted it was a great thrill to come up against Arsenal great Thierry Henry and former Everton star Tim Cahill.

"It was great to play against Henry and Cahill," he told tribalfootball.com.

"They are two players that have played at the very highest level and their class shines on the pitch."

Brockie also said he got the chance to nab himself a piece of memorabilia for his collection.

"I was lucky enough to swap shirts with Henry after the game so I have a collector's item to add to a few others I have obtained over the years," he added.
