Champions League 25th Anniversary - Week 2 - Roma 1-3 Arsenal



This season is the 25th anniversary of the Champions League. Here at ITV Sport Archive we are celebrating it by going through our vault, to find some of the best games featuring British clubs since the competition began 25 years ago.

Back in 2002 Arsenal travelled to the Italian capital to take on Roma. Arsene Wenger's men took on Fabio Capello's side in a group that also contained Ajax and Valencia. With such a tough section, The Gunners needed to make sure they started their group with a positive result, however they got off to the worst possible start when they fell behind in the fourth minute. The stage was set for Thierry Henry to show what he could do, and he didn't disappoint.
