Sporting KC Vs. Red Bulls: N.Y.'s Thierry Henry Named MLS Player Of Week

With just six games remaining in the regular season and only nine points separating first-place Sporting Kansas City from being outside of the playoff picture, Wednesday's game against the New York Red Bulls is a crucial one.

To win the game on Wednesday, Sporting KC will have to contain the MLS Player of the Week, Thierry Henry, of the Red Bulls. It represents the fourth time that the native of France has earned the honor during his MLS career, which began in 2010 with the Red Bulls.

The honor comes after Henry tallied two goals and an assist in a 3-1 win over the Columbus Crew on Saturday.

The Red Bulls are third in the MLS Eastern Conference and are just two points behind Sporting KC for the conference lead.
