Thierry Henry's two-goal, one-assist performance in the Red Bulls' home opener landed him Player of the Week honors Monday afternoon, and now, thanks to your votes, his second of the two tallies has earned Goal of the Week praise as well.

MLSsoccer.com announced today the results of the Goal of the Week candidates, with Henry taking home 35% of the votes for his right-footed finish off a Wilman Conde free kick. Here's how the polls played out:

Thierry Henry (NYRB) 35%

Ricardo Villar (DAL) 16%
Olman Vargas (CLB) 15%
Saer Sene (NE) 8%
