VIDEO: Arsenal legend Henry's header and goal celebration in MLS

Thierry Henry

The former Gunner netted in New York Red Bulls’ 1-1 draw with Colorado Rapids and jumped behind the camera with team-mates.

Arsenal fans will fondly remember Thierry Henry and the sheer amount of goals the Frenchman netted during his time in North London.

The ageing veteran is in the twilight of his career in the MLS, but got the new season off to a good start with a goal for the New York Red Bulls in the campaign opener yesterday.

Henry connected with a cross in the 58th minute to give his side the lead, only for Vicente Sanchez to equalize from the penalty spot in the 72nd minute.

Never one to shirk the limelight, Henry followed his goal with a typically unorthodox celebration, which was well received by the home fans.

Plenty of Arsenal players and transfer targets have been labeled ‘the next Henry’ since the talismanic forward left the Gunners, with none living up to his mantle just yet.
