The Red Bulls'  new signing Thierry Henry, has shown during his Red Bulls debut last week what an asset he could be for the club, .Thierry Henry had a pair of assists in his Major League Soccer debut, setting up Juan Pablo Angel for two goals to give the New York Red Bulls a 2-2 tie against the Houston Dynamo on Saturday night.
The former Barcelona and Arsenal star passed to Angel for goals in the 10th and 58th minutes, twice putting New York ahead in his first competitive match since France's first-round World Cup exit in June.
