Henry wonder goal marks Red Bulls win

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry showed he’s still got the skills that made him one of world football’s greatest players with a brace for New York Red Bulls against Columbus Crew.

Whilst the Frenchman scoring twice isn’t major headline news, it’s the nature of the goals that makes you wonder why the 35-year-old is plying his trade in Major League Soccer.

That’s not a slight on the American top flight, with the profile of the division continuing to rise thanks to players like David Beckham, Robbie Keane, Rui Marquez and Henry.

But, when Henry scores goals like his second – direct from a corner and completely intentional – you wonder why he’s not still on the books of a top European club, challenging for domestic honours in competitions in the Champions League.

His first goal was far from simple either, instantly controlling a long ball with his right foot before slotting home with his left. The Red Bulls, who also have Tim Cahill in their side, were 1-0 down at the time.

They went on to win the match 3-1, with the former Barcelona forward integral to everything positive that the visitors produced. Make sure you watch the goals below, and leave your comments at the bottom of the story...
