Vote Whitecaps FC South American debutants for MLS Goal of the Week

Fernandez in the lead; voting ends at 11:59 p.m. PT Thursday

Vancouver Whitecaps FC seized the spotlight in Week 1 with their 4-1 romp over the New York Red Bulls, and it's looking like newcomer Sebastián Fernández will take home a door prize to boot. 

With 37.76 per cent of the vote, the Uruguayan's long-range golazo is comfortably ahead in the race for the season's first MLS Goal of the Week award, with FC Dallas schemer Mauro Díaz running a distant second with 19.21 per cent. 

The Houston Dynamo's crafty Honduran Boniek García occupies third place with 18.54 per cent, followed by Chicago Fire striker Quincy Amarikwa with 16.02 per cent. Finally, Fernández's teammate Pedro Morales comes in at 8.48 per cent. 

There's still time to influence this race. Cast your ballot for your favorite goal before voting ends! 

The winner is determined by the total number of votes cast online and will be announced on Friday.
