As far as debuts go, Jermain Defoe turned in one of the better MLS debuts in a long time.
The English striker scored a pair of goals to help lead Toronto FC to an impressive season-opening 2-1 win against the Seattle Sounders, earning SBI MLS Player of the Week honors in the process.
The TFC Designated Player raced onto a quality Jonathan Osorio pass to open the scoring with a sublime finish, then pounced on a poor Seattle turnover before finishing expertly past Stefan Frei for what wound up being the game-winning goal.
Defoe beat out a strong field of candidates that included Victor Bernardez, Mauro Rosales and Sebastien LeToux for this week’s honors.
