Toronto FC newcomer Robert Earnshaw has taken home the Player of the Week prize for Week 2 in MLS. Earnshaw scored two goals in Toronto FC’s 2-1 win over Sporting KC.
Earnshaw scored just three minutes in when he picked off a lazy pass between defenders Matt Besler and Aurelien Collin. He then added a second goal in the 21st minute from the penalty spot.
Pretty impressive day considering that the Welsh forward just joined Toronto two weeks ago.
Earnshaw received 16 of the 25 votes, more than enough to earn his first POW award in MLS. Canadian club players did very well with Vancouver’s Kenny Miller and Montreal’s Patrice Bernier getting other first place votes. Not too shabby Canada. Not too shabby.
