Heading into the last MLS weekend, the New York Red Bulls were just one more win away from claiming the first title in their 17-year history (counting the Metro Stars era) - the Supporters’ Shield, awarded to the team with the best regular season record. Thanks in part to their world star Thierry Henry, New York finally ended the drought.

Down 1-0 to the Chicago Fire in the all-important last match, Henry unloaded a spectacular goal to tie it up for New York midway through the first half. Henry chested down a long ball from the Red Bulls’ own half, waited for the right bounce, and smashed a dipping volley off the crossbar and in. Just, wow:

Probably stunned by Henry’s brilliance, Chicago ended up conceding four more goals as New York won 5-2 and claimed the Shield.

Next up: The MLS Cup playoffs, for which the Red Bulls are obviously the Number 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Check out the full bracket:
