He may now be in the twilight of his career, but Thierry Henry is still capable of brilliance, as this glorious back-heeled assist for the New York City Red Bulls at the weekend shows.

The Arsenal great set the Red Bulls on their way to a 2-0 victory against DC United on Sunday with this assist (see video below), he then also set up their second with a driving long range ball.

In the area with his back to goal, Henry set up former Southampton man Bradley Wright-Phillips with a fine assist.

Henry's contract with the MLS side expires at the end of the year, and it has been reported that he will not be renewing it. Is a third spell with the Gunners on the cards?
