Thierry Henry, Wilman Conde, Named to MLS Team of the Week

By Frank Della Femina

Red Bulls forward Thierry Henry and defender Wilman Conde were named to the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week.

Henry’s inclusion comes after his two-goal, one-assist performance against Colorado helped lift the Red Bulls to their first win of the season. It also earned Henry Player of the Week honors and placed him in the running for Goal of the Week considerations as well.

Conde, who made his New York debut in Sunday’s 4-1 win, didn’t waste any time making his presence known in the defensive end. Head Coach Hans Backe described the newly-acquired defender as “massive” for New York, and it definitely showed in his outing this past weekend. What’s more, Conde also showed a little offensive flare with a beautifully placed ball that led to Henry’s second goal, earning the Colombian defender his first assist in New York colors.
