Thierry Henry scores off the back post, directly from a corner kick

Dirty Tackle

Thierry Henry scored the first and last goals in the New York Red Bulls' 3-1 win against Columbus Crew and he finished off his brace in spectacular fashion with a goal scored off the back post directly from a corner kick in the third minute of injury time (54 seconds into the video above).

Columbus' backup keeper Matt Lampson had just come off the bench in the 85th minute and Henry took advantage of that fact by duping him into thinking he was going to take a short corner. He lured Lampson in, then he launched the ball off the back post and in for an Olimpico goal.

Henry now has 13 goals on the season, fourth best in MLS, and the Red Bulls are just two points behind Kansas City in the Eastern Conference.

Here's a fan's view of his second against Columbus...
