On Saturday night against Sporting Kansas City, the King did it again.
Thierry Henry cut inside from the left channel, bought himself just enough space from Sporting KC’s defenders and riffled a shot into the far corner to add another stunning goal to his growing collection of highlight reel strikes.

Rumors are rife that Henry will walk away from the New York Red Bulls and MLS at the end of the 2014 season when his DP contract is set to expire. Since he arrived from Barcelona in 2010, Henry has lit up the league with incredible goals, dazzling skills and that swaggering French panache which personifies his play.
If he does move on or retire after this season, he’s certainly left Red Bulls fans and soccer lovers in the U.S. with some sublime goals to remember him by. The Olimpico vs. Columbus in 2012. Bicycle kick vs. Montreal in 2013. Half-volley vs. Chicago in 2013.
However, after all those stunners, was this Henry’s best goal since he arrive in MLS?
