MOST COMMENTED

[RED BULL RATO DEL SOL] Thierry Henry returned to action with the New York Red Bulls and had a new partner up front in Kenny Cooper, acquired from Portland in the offseason, but the Red Bulls had to settle for a 0-0 tie with Mexican club UNAM before almost 15,000 fans in Phoenix on Thursday night.

Cooper has replaced Englishman Luke Rodgers, who has been unable to get a visa to return to the United States.

Cooper was one of three newcomers to start for New York, along with rookie goalie Ryan Meara out of Fordham and central defender Markus Holgersson.

Meara was the hero for the Red Bulls, making two saves in the first half to stymie Pumas.

New York --Meara, Solli, Holgersson, Keel, Miller, Richards, Marquez, Tainio (McCarty 46), Lindpere, Cooper, Henry.

    Cooper has an opportunity to showcase himself; as for Rodgers, lots of hustle, but really no soccer brain.
