Thierry Henry Scored a Classy, Throwback Goal vs. Sporting KC

By Mike Cardillo

Theirry Henry is 37 years old and likely to retire from professional soccer at the end of the 2014 MLS season. That’s a shame because the French legend is still capable of incredible moments, such as this goal during Saturday night’s Red Bulls/Sporting Kansas City match. The KC defense must have forgotten who Henry was, because that’s way too much space to give him at the top of the penalty area. The ex-Arsenal star made the slack defending pay with a laser into the opposite corner, triggering memories of his days at Highbury.

Class, in Henry’s case, is eternal.
