Henry opened the scoring in the 29th minute, and Olave scored in the 36th to help New York (2-3-2) win for the first time in its last five tries at RFK Stadium dating to April 2011.
A raucous RFK Stadium crowd may have witnessed the theatrics of postseason soccer for the first time in five years Saturday, but neither D.C. United nor the New York Red Bulls seemed well cast as playoff contenders. When all was said and done, United and the Red Bulls found themselves deadlocked 1-1 after the first leg of their two-game, total-goals Eastern Conference semifinal.
In the world of soccer, conventional wisdom says a draw at home is far from ideal. When it comes to a two-game, total-goals series, in fact, the result can be downright disheartening.
To Major League Soccer, the All-Star Game in recent years had become, in some regards, a sore subject. Envisioned as a spotlight for the league's top talent, the midsummer spectacle instead developed into an arbitrary symbol for how far soccer in the U.S. still has to go.
Back in his playing days with D.C. United, Ben Olsen relished the chance to test himself when European giants came across the pond. Sure, the friendlies didn't count in the standings. But no matter the stage, going head-to-head with world-class talent is a special experience.
D.C. United coach Ben Olsen will be in charge of at least one familiar face when he leads the MLS All-Stars against Chelsea FC later this month, as United captain Dwayne De Rosario was named Sunday to the fan-voted All-Star First XI.

"It's nice for the fans," said Henry, who had his day in the Premier League with Arsenal. "They are going to see some of the best players in the world. We all know we are playing against Man United. It's going to be a difficult game and we're going to try to keep the ball, which is not an easy one against them."
"Man United is Man United," Henry said. "I think everybody, in a way, expects them to win. We are going to try to cause an upset and see how we can do it. We all know it is going to be a difficult one, but we will try."
