35-year-old Thierry Henry scores overhead winner for New York

Dirty Tackle

Thierry Henry scored twice in New York's 2-1 win over Montreal and his second goal wasn't what you would expect from a 35-year-old in the twilight of his career. With New York up 1-0 in the 88th minute, Juninho's corner kick was headed back to Henry, who flung his feet into the air to score from just inside the six-yard box.

It looked like it took a bit more effort than it would've 10 years ago, but it was still a lovely goal (even if the commentator went way overboard calling it the "goal of the decade") and it proved to be the difference in the match since Marco Di Vaio scored for Montreal in the second minute of injury time.

Henry now has five goals on the season, putting him one behind the league leaders.
