New England Revolution captain Shalrie Joseph has heaped praise on Thierry Henry after playing with him for the very first time.

The 33-year old midfielder played alongside the former Arsenal striker in the MLS All-Star side in their 4-0 loss to Manchester United in New Jersey on Wednesday night and was full of praise for the New York Red Bulls star.

"I was not disappointed one bit by how good he was on the ball and how good of a teammate he was," said Joseph.

"That's what the league is about. To me, he's one of the best players in the league."
