Thierry Henry impressed by Arsenal signing: He doesn't care who he is playing


Arsenal legend Thierry Henry was impressed with Granit Xhaka's debut for Switzerland at Euro 2016.

The 23-year-old came face to face with brother Taulant during his side's 1-0 victory against Albania.

And according to the Frenchman, he was not afraid to fight for the ball and to do what was needed to be done to help his side secure victory.

"He didn't care it was his brother," Henry told BBC Sport.

"He [Xhaka] doesn't care who he is playing, he does what he has to do to win the game."

Xhaka was elected man of the match by the BBC at the end of the game.
