It certainly looks like the New York Red Bulls have solved their goal-scoring issues. After scoring only two goals in their first four matches, the Red Bulls now have seven in their last two after routing D.C. United, 4-0, Thursday night at RFK Stadium.
Thierry Henry’s first two-goal game in his MLS career propelled the Red Bulls, who are now in first place in the Eastern Conference with 11 points, improving to 3-1-2. Midfielder Joel Lindpere and forward Juan Agudelo also recorded goals while Jan Gunnar Solli tallied three assists.
Henry scored in the 12th and 38th minutes. Henry first deposited a cross from Solli with a header inside the left post from 10 yards. He added his second goal after a pass from Solli as well, this time scoring through traffic from eight yards.
D.C. United (2-3-1) was shut out for the first time this year.
New York returns on home Saturday, April 30, when it hosts Sporting Kansas City at 7:30 p.m.
