Thierry Henry Named to MLSsoccer.com's Week 5 Team of the Week

By Frank Della Femina

For the past few weeks Thierry Henry's name has been a staple on the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week. Nothing much has changed in Week 5, after his two goals and one assist against the Columbus Crew earned him his third consecutive Player of the Week honor (the first time ever in MLS history) and yet another place on the League's Starting XI.

Henry's run of seven goals and three assists over the past three matches, all Red Bulls wins, already has some including him in early-season MVP talks. And why not? He's already registered half of his total goals from the 2011 campaign (14 goals in 26 games), and there are still plenty of matches left to play.

Interestingly enough Henry is joined by this weekend's opponent, San Jose's Chris Wondolowski, whose six goals has him sitting just one behind Henry, the current league leader in that category. Somehow Kansas City's Kei Kamara, who has half of Kenny Cooper's goal total, rounds out this week's front lines on the MLSsoccer.com feature. Check out the rest of the Week 5 Starting XI here.

If you haven't done so already, watch the latest video featuring Thierry Henry entitled "Pure Heart." Of course, keep an eye out for it during this Saturday's broadcast on MSG+, starting at 7pm ET.

Tickets to Saturday's match against the Earthquakes are available on Red Bulls Ticket Central or by calling 877.RB.SOCCER.
