The Red Bull’s fabulous scoring Frenchman hasn’t been scoring lately, but what a moment he manufactured in Harrison, N.J. against Chicago on Wednesday.

The strike itself was world-class, but so was the first touch, a savvy one that took him away from the nearest defender, creating just enough shooting space.

It also took him into a bit of a bad angle. But, you know, this is Henry. No problem. Just watch.
