The Canadian striker nodded home a cross from Giles Barnes in the 15th minute of a 1-0 win over New York City FC on Sunday, marking the first goal scored at Orlando City Stadium.

That tally came just four minutes after Barnes came on for Orlando star Kaka, who was forced off early with a left hamstring strain.

While NYCFC heaped on the pressure after the break, Orlando held on to kick off the season with three points in front of 25,527 at the new soccer-specific venue.
