The top all-time goal-scorer for France, Henry had an immensely successful career in Europe playing in different leagues throughout his European career, leaving as one of the most-decorated French footballers ever.
By deciding to join the Red Bulls, Henry brought increased notoriety to soccer in the United States not seen in many years. Henry scored his first goal only a couple weeks into his New York career, eventually helping his new club to win the Eastern Conference in his first season, and leading the Red Bulls to claim the Regular Season Champions trophy in 2012 – the first major award the franchise ever won.
