Doneil Henry (born April 20, 1993 in Brampton, Ontario) is a Canadian soccer player who currently plays for Toronto FC in Major League Soccer.

Career[edit]

Youth and college[edit]

Henry attended Fletchers Meadow Secondary School and Royal Orchard Middle School in Brampton, Ontario, and began his career with the Brampton Bullets in the GTA. He then moved to North Mississauga as a member of the U-14 program.

Professional[edit]

Henry joined the Toronto FC Academy in November 2008, and captained the team through two seasons in the Canadian Soccer League in 2009 and 2010.[1]

Henry appeared for Toronto FC in the 2010 Nutrilite Canadian Championship against the Vancouver Whitecaps and a CONCACAF Champions League Qualifying match against C.D. Motagua. He also played in an international friendly against Bolton Wanderers. He signed with Toronto FC on August 26, 2010 becoming the first TFC Academy player to sign for the first team.[2] Henry made his first league appearance as a sub for Maicon Santos in stoppage time versus DC United October 23, 2010.

Henry made his debut in 2011 two months into the season on June 4, 2011 as a late second half sub for Nana Attakora in a 0-0 home draw against Sporting Kansas City. Following Henry's season debut injuries to Adrian Cann, Nana Attakora and Dicoy Williams began to hurt the club in central defense. Coach Aron Winter was left little choice but to start the young TFC Academy product the following few games including a standout performance on June 15 in a 0-0 away draw against New England Revolution in which he drew high praise from Taylor Twellman who was commentating on the game.[3] After coming on for Richard Eckersley in the second half against Real Salt Lake on April 28, 2012, Henry scored his first goal for Toronto in the 77th minute in a 3-2 away defeat.[4] On August 21, the club announced that it had re-signed Henry to a long term deal.[5]

Henry scored his second goal for Toronto outside the penalty box in a 2-0 home victory over rival Montreal Impact in the Canadian Championship on April 24, 2013.[6] Prior to the 2014 season Henry sent some time training with Premier League side West Ham United.[7] After scoring mid week in the Canadian Championship against Montreal Impact Henry scored the 92nd minute game winner against Columbus Crew in a 3-2 home victory May 31, 2014.[8]

International[edit]

Henry played three matches for the Canada U-20 men's national soccer team.[9]

Henry was selected for the Canada U23 roster to partake in the 2012 CONCACAF Men's Olympic Qualifying Tournament.[10] After sitting out the first game Henry started and scored the opening goal against the United States U23, the match ended in a 2-0 victory for Canada.[11]

Henry earned his first cap for Canada's senior team August 15, 2012 in a friendly against Trinidad and Tobago. Henry started the match before being subbed out at halftime for Pedro Pacheco, the game ended in a 2-0 victory.[12] On December 10, 2012 Henry was awarded the 2012 Canadian U-20 Player of the Year, receiving 37.8% of the vote and just beating out Samuel Piette for the award.[13]

On June 27, 2013 Henry was listed as a part of the confirmed 23-man squad for Colin Miller's Canada squad for 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup.[14]
