Wanyama Fires Montreal FC Into Winning Ways

Wilfried Nancy’s side started the new season with a victory, with the Kenyan international among the goal scorers.

On the first day of the Major League Soccer 2021 season, CF Montreal beat Toronto FC 4-2 thanks to Victor Wanyama’s goal.

In the 24th minute, Romell Quioto doubled Wilfried Nancy’s lead, with Joel Waterman providing the assist.

Wanyama gave his team a two-goal lead in the 54th minute of a tightly fought second half. The Kenya international rose above his markers to head Uganda’s Mustafa Kizza’s corner-kick past a helpless Bono.

Montreal got their fourth of the evening in the 71st minute through Djordje Mihailovic. Erik Hurtado found Mihailovic from the right flank and the 30-year-old ghosted past Omar Gonzalez before netting his first goal ever for the club. Two minutes before full time, Richie Laryea scored the second for Chris Armas’ team.

While Wanyama and Diop were in action from start to finish, Kizza was replaced in the 79th minute by Amar Sejdic.
