Thierry Henry: Second-Half Showcase

The New York Red Bulls entered Saturday night with a slim hold on the fifth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Just one point kept them above both the Philadelphia Union and New England Revolution. A home game against the last-place Montreal Impact seemed like a good opportunity for New York to at least maintain their hold on fifth. Despite creating several chances early on, the Red Bulls went into half trailing by a goal. After the break, 36-year-old Thierry Henry took over. What you’re about to see is a 25-minute clinic on putting the ball into dangerous territory. There’s not much I can add to these gifs, so I’ll keep my commentary limited.

Should Evan Bush have saved that? Yes.

Now I ask you this: does the above look like the play of a man who should retire?
