The Ryan Nelsen era officially began in week one with a close loss to Toronto FC, but what will likely be remembered more as the first major step in Nelsen’s ascent as TFC head coach is his team’s win against Sporting Kansas City last Saturday.
TFC took it took the Eastern Conference powerhouse, impressing the big crowd at Rogers Center and handing Sporting KC a 2-1 loss. The team’s strong showing, led by newcomers Rober Earnshaw and John Bostock, made them a strong pick for SBI MLS Team of the Week for Week Two.
Toronto FC beat out fellow Canadian sides Montreal and Vancouver for this week’s honor, doing so behind a strong team defensive effort and the attacking exploits of Earnshaw and Bostock.
