You know how some players lose their ability as they get older? Yeah...that hasn't happened to Thierry Henry.

Most expected the French forward to fade into retirement after he swapped top-level European football for MLS.

However the Arsenal legend gave a timely reminder of his skills during the New York Red Bulls' game against the Chicago Fire in the MLS Supporters’ Shield.

Henry, who hit an astonishing 228 goals in 377 games for Arsenal, came to his current side's rescue when he controlled a long pass with his chest before firing an unstoppable volley into the top corner of the net.

That made it 1-1 and seemingly inspired the Red Bulls, as they went on to claim a 5-2 win at the Red Bull Arena.

Someone should get on the phone to Arsene Wenger ahead of the January window.....Arsenal need another striker, right?
