'Caps Chronicle: Goals are the goal
WHITECAPS FC IN THE NEWS:
It was a fantastic start for Whitecaps FC on Saturday. The two goals notched by Sebastian Le Toux and Camilo were both works of art and great team goals. The staff at MLSsoccer.com also thought the 'Caps scores each stood out, as they have both been nominated for Goal of the Week. Make sure to vote for either Le Toux or Camilo. (MLSsoccer.com)
Last year’s team MVP and top scorer Camilo is back with Whitecaps FC and he's looking to score even more goals this year and make a run at the MLS Golden Boot. “I think I can score more,” stated Camilo. Only time will tell how Camilo will fare this season, but he’s off to a great start. (Marc Weber - The Province)
Soccer teams are often great examples of cultural mosaics. Whitecaps FC are no different; their back four is made up of five different nationalities: American, Argentinean, Korean and Swiss-Canadian. Naturally, however, English is slowly starting to make its way as the predominant language on the back line. (Bruce Constantineau - The Vancouver Sun)
