Former England striker, Alan Shearer, and ex-France forward, Thierry Henry, have become the first players to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.

PL Hall of Fame recognises players who have demonstrated an exceptional record of on-pitch success and have made important contributions.

To be eligible, players must have been retired as of August 1, 2020.

Former Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United striker, Shearer still holds the record as the Premier League’s highest scorer with 260 goals in 441 appearances across 14 seasons.

Following his move to Arsenal from Juventus in 1999, Henry won the Premier League title twice and was a key member of the ‘Invincibles’ team which went unbeaten during the 2003/04 title-winning season.

Henry scored a club record 175 Premier League goals in 258 appearances for Arsenal and was the league’s top scorer in a season a record four times.
