Former Tottenham Hotspur, Jermain Defoe - in hopes of making Englands squad for the upcoming World Cup - saw MLS as his best showcase. Peter Shorts Jersey Store . Michael Bradley, who some argue to be the strongest American player in the world, also left soccers more glamorous European stage, departing AS Roma for more playing time in preparation for Brazil this coming summer. This weekend saw both players delivering on their marquee reputations in front of a sold out crowd at TFCs BMO Field. Defoe maintained his status as the sole goal scorer of the team, netting his third of the season, while Bradleys midfield presence and decisive passing continues to impress. A second-half collision forced Bradley to leave the field, only to return with his head semi- mummified with blood soaked bandages, displaying a trait that will undoubtedly endear him to Canadian fans. BarDown went to the game to bring the sights both on and off the field. Take a look. (All photos by Paul Harrington for TSN/BarDown) 1.

Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Jonathan Quick, Los Angeles Kings (3) – Quick had a couple good saves early on Patrick Sharp and Brandon Saad. First goal was a give-and-go quick play that Patrick Kane forehanded blocker side on a one-timer. The second one is a smart play by Ben Smith to bank it off Quick.
