Thierry Henry made a flying start to his career with the New York Red Bulls last night by netting in his first half hour on the field.
Henry was facing off against a familiar foe as the New York Red Bulls took on Tottenham Hotspur as part of the Barclay’s New York Challenge.
Capitalising on some great footwork from his new team-mate Joel Lindepare, Henry was on hand at the near post to slot the ball into the far corner; opening his account at the Red Bull Arena.
However, it was a debut that Henry won’t remember as being perfect, as breakdowns in Goalkeeper-Defender communications saw the Fightin’ Energy Drinks concede needlessly to Robbie Keane and Gareth Bale.
Interestingly, Henry has switched his football boots yet again, moving away from the Reebok Instante Pro II‘s he wore at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and back into the Instante plus that saw out his days at Barcelona.
Henry has still got bundles of quality as a football player no matter what else he has done.
I watched the whole game and before Henry was taken off he showed some very neat touches and was a danger every time the ball was nearby. He even went back to nab the ball from modric.
