New York Red Bulls forward Bradley Wright-Phillips leads MLS in goals, and he brought his top goal-scoring form to the league's All-Star Game against Bayern Munich Wednesday night. 

With MLS trailing 1-0 after Robert Lewandowski's superb first-half volley, Wright-Phillips turned in one of his own. Running onto Erick Torres' looping header, Wright-Phillips split two center backs and laced a left-footed rocket that left Bayern backup goalkeeper Tom Starke helpless. 

BIRD: All-Star Game a tribute to Thierry Henry

Wright-Phillips' 18 goals are four more than his closest competitors for the league's Golden Boot (Torres and Dom Dwyer), and he'll make a run at Roy Lassiter and Chris Wondolowski's single-season record of 27 goals down the stretch in the Red Bulls' final 12 games. For the meantime, he has a sublime strike against one of the World's top clubs that he can savor.
