NBC highlights from New York’s win over Philadelphia


Thierry Henry gets so much of the attention directed toward New York’s pro soccer team.

Fellow DPs and international stars Tim Cahill and Rafa Marquez scoop up their share, too. And this year, American midfielder Dax McCarty has enjoyed a fantastic season.

But let’s tip our hats today to Kenny Cooper, who just matched an individual season high in goals. With Nos. 17 and 18 this year, Cooper matched his 2008 total, which was second that year among all MLS scorers.

That’s probably where he’ll finish this year, as well. Going into tonight’s matches, he’s second behind only Chris Wondolowski.

Here are both of Cooper’s goals in Saturday’s win over Philadelphia, along with the rest of the highlights.
