It’s hard to imagine a better start to the 2014 MLS season for the Vancouver Whitecaps, as a 4-1 thrashing of 2013 Supporters Shield winners New York Red Bulls has earned the Whitecaps honors as this season’s first SBI MLS Team of the Week.
The Whitecaps completely outclassed the opposition behind a brace from Kenny Miller. Sebastian Fernandez added a 25-yard screamer in the 50th, while Pedro Morales increased the Red Bulls’ misery in the 89th. Red Bulls forward Bradley Wright-Phillips scored what was little more than a consolation goal in the 90th for a team that had been completely outplayed in every facet of the game.
The Whitecaps beat out the Houston Dynamo and Columbus Crew for this week’s honors, both of which picked up wins 4-0 and 3-0, respectively.
What did you think of the Whitecaps performance? Which team stood out to you in MLS Week 1?
