thumbnail Hello,

With a titan clash with the Los Angeles Galaxy looming Friday, Major League Soccer has decided to fine but not suspend New York Red Bulls Designated Player Thierry Henry for his actions Thursday against FC Dallas.

In extra time of the first half, Henry celebrated a Mehdi Ballouchy goal by attempting to kick the ball back into the net. Dallas goalkeeper Kevin Hartman was attempting to clear the ball away at the same time. The resulting collision left Hartman injured; the 36-year-old had to be substituted and will miss two-three weeks.

The Frenchman had already picked up a yellow card, but escaped without an additional booking for the interaction.

MLS has deemed the act worthy of a $2000 fine upon further review.

The league also added to Brek Shea's fine and suspension. The Dallas attacker clattered into Chris Albright with a nasty two-footed tackle, earning a straight red. MLS boosted his automatic one-game ban and $250 fine to two games and $1000 total.

Despite going down to 10 men, Dallas held on for a 2-2 draw at home, extending its unbeaten run to 15 games.
