Toronto FC striker Defoe still struggling with hamstring injury

Jermain Defoe will miss Toronto FC's clash against Colorado Rapids.

The former Tottenham striker is carrying a hamstring injury.

"With Jermain, we have to get it right," Nelsen said in reference to Defoe, whose original diagnosis was a "mild" hamstring pull.

"If we have to sacrifice next week (road game April 19 in Dallas) . . . it's a long season and he's probably got something more in the summer (World Cup with England). So we have to take care of him."
