The Red Bulls endured a nightmare start to the match as the visiting side took the lead in the sixth minute through Mike Magee.

Knowing they needed a win to claim their first trophy, the hosts piled on the pressure and Henry netted a stunning strike in the 24th minute to equalise.

The Frenchman chested down a chip from Péguy Luyindula before volleying a dipping shot into the top corner that opposing goalkeeper Sean Johnson could only watch.

The Red Bulls blew the game open early in the second half with Ibrahim Sekagya and Lloyd Sam scoring within 11 minutes of the break to make it 3-1 for Mike Petke's men.

Eric Alexander made it 4-1 in the 77th minute before Jonathan Steele scored the home side's fifth with six minutes remaining.

Chicago substitute Quincy Amarikwa made it 5-2 in the 90th minute but it made little difference to the result as the Red Bulls celebrated their Supporters' Shield triumph in front of a sold-out crowd of 25,219 at the Red Bull Arena.
