Arsenal legend Thierry Henry showed searing pace to set up Wright-Phillips as the NYRB lost 5-4 to Chicago [Video]

Thierry Henry, Arsenal’s all-time top goal scorer, now 36, showed his incredible physical shape once again last weekend in the MLS.

The craziest game of the weekend in the American top flight came on Saturday night, as the New York Red Bulls lost 5-4 on home soil to the Chicago Fire.

Bradley Wright-Phillips was the star of the show for the Red Bulls, as the Englishman netted his second hat-trick of the season in the goal-fest.

One of Wright-Phillips’ goals, to make the score 2-1 at the time, was set up by a superb assist from Thierry Henry.

Showing his raw pace and ball control which made him such a star at Arsenal, the French forward blew past Fire defender Jhon Kennedy Hurtado before delivering an inch-perfect cross for Wright-Phillips to bury into the net.

In nine MLS games this season, Henry now has three goals and three assists.
