WATCH: Robert Earnshaw scores his second, from the penalty spot, Toronto FC 2-0 SportingKC

Robert Earnshaw is having a dream home debut at the Rogers Centre in Toronto today. He's got two goals now.

Sporting Kansas City's disastrous start - the one in which they conceded a goal in just the 3rd minute to Toronto FC on Saturday - took a turn for the even worse when TFC won a questionable penalty in the 21st minute for a challenge made by seemingly the entire Sporting KC defense and team inside the box.

Robert Earnshaw, scorer of the 3rd minute goal, stepped up and sent Sporting goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen the wrong way and and put TFC up 2-0. The decision to give the penalty was questionable enough, but with new signing, midfielder John Bostock, dancing his way towards Nielsen's goal, the Englishman was allowed to take too much ground in the first place. Bostock was looking likely to go down even before the accused contact, but any chance a defender gives the referee to give a penalty, is a chance too many.

If the score from the first 20 minutes hold up, this will undoubtedly be the shock result of the - admittedly very young - 2013 MLS season.
