SUNDERLAND flop Jozy Altidore began life back in the MLS on a positive note last night after netting a brace on his competitive debut for Toronto FC.

Altidore, who left Sunderland in a January swap deal with Jermain Defoe after just one Premier League goal in 18 months on Wearside, helped his new side to a 2-1 victory at Vancouver Whitecaps on the opening day of the MLS season.

The American striker grabbed an equaliser, before scoring the winning goal from the penalty spot.

Toronto boss Greg Vanney told MLSsoccer.com: “Jozy played like a monster out there.

“I think the people who were questioning Jozy probably got a real quick image of what he is capable of and what they’re going to see a lot more of in this league.”
