Thierry Henry, without a goal at Euro 2004, and yet to justify his reputation as the world’s best striker, says he he is happy to adapt his game for the needs of the team.
“If I have to divide myself into four to help the team win then I’ll do that,” he said after Thursday’s 2-2 draw against Croatia.
“The role of a striker is a difficult one. You try to create something but it’s tough when the team facing you shuts up shop.
“But you keep on plugging away,” he said.
Henry has not scored for France since a 3-0 win in a November friendly against Germany and suddenly less effective than when playing for Arsenal.
“In the first half against Croatia I played as I did against England. I was out on the left and it was much easier. In the second half I tried to stay further forward and then it got a little more delicate,” the striker.
“If I have to go out left, I’ll go left.”
