San Jose Earthquakes gave us a lesson - NYRB's Henry

Even though the scoreboard read 2-2, New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry felt his side did not deserve anything from the weekend's meeting with San Jose Earthquakes at Red Bull Arena.

The Red Bulls twice led in the first half but the Quakes were able to respond on both occasions before dominating proceedings in the second term in a match the home side could have quite easily lost according to their star scorer.

"No excuses: It's enough now,'' said Henry. "Every time, we concede goals. Sometimes the team doesn't even mark players.

"You have to give credit to San Jose; we didn't touch the ball in the second half. If any team deserved to win, it (was San Jose). San Jose gave us a lesson in football today.>[? "You can say whatever you want, but you've got to work hard in some games. We're not going to score 3 and 4 all the time, so you've got to win sometime one-nil, ugly game. You've got to be able to clinch it, especially at home."
