New York Red Bulls forward Thierry Henry has been ruled out of Friday’s highly anticipated Major League Soccer showdown with the Galaxy at the Home Depot Center due to an MCL sprain in his right knee, the team announced Tuesday.

The decision will deny Galaxy star David Beckham the opportunity to play against his former English Premiership rival for the first time in the U.S.

Beckham was still recovering from his own injury when the two teams met at Red Bull Arena in August.
