New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry admits he is feeling no pain in his Achilles for the first time in a while.
The former Arsenal and Barcelona star scored his first MLS goal of the season with a lovely diving header in the 3-0 win over San Jose Earthquakes on the weekend and has got through training ahead of tonight's clash with DC United at Washington's RFK Stadium.
Henry said that he was looking forward to give his all for the Red Bulls in what will be a vital game against a DC side who are also coming off 3-0 win, over Toronto FC.
"I've been pain-free for the first time this week and the end of the week before. Hopefully I can stay like this and give 110 percent for the team,'' said Henry.
And the Frenchman added that patience was the key to New York finally producing a winning score but knows very well that DC will be a difficult test.
"The goals are always going to come if you play the way we played on Saturday, with desire and commitment starting from the front," he added.
"They don't give up; they come back. They did something we haven't done yet; win away from home. Hopefully we can do it. We know it's going to be a difficult game, a derby.''
