VIDEO: Thierry Henry scores game-winner for Red Bulls

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Frenchman shows some pure class with an impressive first-touch and make-it-look-easy finish.

Thierry Henry may not be the player he once was, but he showed once again that he's still capable of producing magical moments. Only a few minutes after just missing on a bicycle kick that would have been a candidate for goal of the year, the New York Red Bulls forward scored his first goal of the season by controlling a pass with his thigh, volleying it to himself and beating the goalkeeper with a left-footed effort. The goal stood up as the game-winner for the Red Bulls, who topped the Philadelphia Union 2-1 on Saturday.

The soon-to-be-35-year-old had gone scoreless in his first three games and is nursing an injury. He came off the bench in this one and seemed to benefit from the extra rest. As soon as he entered the game, Henry was buzzing all over the field and creating dangerous chances. He now has 32 goals in 66 MLS appearances.
