Thierry Henry Backheel Sets Up Bradley Wright-Phillips’ Goal in MLS Playoffs

Thierry Henry may be 37 years old, but he's still up to his old tricks and playing a major role in a title challenge. 

Henry's New York Red Bulls hosted DC United in the first leg of the MLS semifinals Sunday, and he got the home side off to an excellent start with this clever backheel assist.

At the end of it was Bradley Wright-Phillips, the league's leading scorer this season with an impressive 27 regular-season goals.

Henry doubled his assists tally in the 73rd minute, providing this brilliant ball for Pegguy Luyindula.
