MLS Wrap: Kaká, Diskerud, Altidore score on opening weekend

Three of Major League Soccer's big off-season acquisitions opened their accounts on the first weekend of action.

Jozy Altidore struck twice in Toronto's 3-1 win at Vancouver on Saturday, and Mix Diskerud traded goals with Kaká in Orlando's 1-1 draw with New York City on Sunday. A capacity crowd of 62,510 fans was on hand at the Citrus Bowl to watch the first game in MLS for both of this year's expansion teams.

Here's a look back at all of the highlights from around the league on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Los Angeles Galaxy: Jose Villarreal 65', Robbie Keane 81'

D.C. United: Jairo Arrieta 58'

Houston Dynamo: Giles Barnes 66

FC Dallas: Blas Pérez 90 +2'

(I don't normally have much to say about scoreless draws, but Nick Rimando's spectacular saves are worth watching.)

Orlando City: Kaká 90 +1'
New York City FC: Mix Diskerud 76'

Sporting Kansas City: Ike Opara 50'
New York Red Bulls: Lloyd Sam 54'

Seattle Sounders: Clint Dempsey (PK) 25', Obafemi Martins 41', Clint Dempsey 67'
