A Hat Trick of Nominees for Henry

Red Bulls captain has third strike nominated for Goal of the Year

Teammates Juan Agudelo and Thierry Henry remain in the hunt for the title of Goal of the Year.

Over the previous stages of voting, Agudelo and Henry combined for four of the total goal entries that will ultimately dwindle down to one title-holder for the 2011 season.  Now, in the latest bout of voting for groups I through L, you can toss another Henry strike into the mix. This entry, which came against Chicago on Aug. 13, gives Henry a hat trick of nominees in consideration for Goal of the Year.

See how Henry's strike measures up against Roger Torres (Philadelphia), Jorge Perlaza (Portland) and Brian Mullan (Colorado), and be sure to cast your vote for New York's captain:
