SBI MLS Player of the Week

SBI MLS Player of the Week: Thierry Henry

The New York Red Bulls have made it a frustrating habit of starting matches slowly, but Thierry Henry has helped counter those slow starts with his own goal-scoring heroics.

Henry stepped up to pick up the Red Bulls yet again on Saturday, scoring two goals and setting up another in New York's 3-1 victory against the Columbus Crew on Saturday. Henry's goals, including a stunning goal directly off a corner kick, erased a third-minute deficit and made Henry the clear choice for SBI MLS Player of the Week honors.

Henry collected a long pass from Rafa Marquez for an early equalizer, then set up the game-winning goal with the corner kick headed home by Dax McCarty. He capped his night by striking a goal off a corner kick in jaw-dropping fashion.

Henry beat out Chicago's Alvaro Fernandez, LA Galaxy's Marcelo Sarvas and D.C. United's Chris Pontius for this week's honors.

What did you think of Henry's performance? Which MLS player impressed you the most last week?
