English-born Ghanaian winger Lloyd Sam stole the show with a glistening display and scored a fabulous strike for New York Red Bulls in their 4-1 demolition of Columbus Crew on Sunday. 

The former Charlton Athletics man scored from a Thierry Henry assist on the hour mark to register his second league goal of the season for the Reds.

Bradley Wright-Phillips and Henry had scored twice to put the title contenders 2-1 ahead before Sam cushioned the lead with a sensational finish.
