Jermain Defoe has been named the Major League Soccer Player of the Week for Week 2 of the 2014 season.
Former Tottenham star Defoe opened his MLS and TFC account in the 17th minute when he finished neatly after receiving a through ball from Jonathan Osorio before adding a second seven minutes later when he pounced on a backpass from Marco Pappa before firing beyond Stefan Frei.
Defoe was voted for by the North American Soccer Reporters following a stellar debut, beating off competition from San Jose Earthquakes defender Victor Bernardez, who also scored a double.
