A Thierry Henry hat-tricked helped the New York Red Bulls to back-to-back wins in the MLS, after their 5-2 thrashing of the Montreal Impact.
The legendary French forward earned his first league treble in the American top-flight, with team-mates Kenny Cooper and Mehdi Ballouchy also scoring for New York at the Red Bull Arena on Saturday.
