Quintessentially Canadian Power Rankings, MLS Week 26/NASL Week 20

Tesho Akindele started for FC Dallas and scored on a penalty kick. Orlando City’s Cyle Larin thought he’d the MLS rookie scoring record on Sunday. But it was later ruled an own goal. Larin and Chicago defender Eric Gehrig both went up for the cross — and it was later ruled the ball glanced off Gehrig’s head after the goal was initially credited to Larin. The goal will be reviewed again to see if Larin gets goal No. 12 or if he’ll be stuck on 11.

But, more importantly for Canadian soccer followers, the two forwards will head into next week’s World Cup qualifying two-legged knockout series against Belize with a bit more confidence.

Larin is fourth overall in our Canadian minutes-played ranking. Akindele moved up into 10th. The top two spots belong to NASL players — Atlanta’s Kyle Porter and FC Edmonton’s Eddie Edward.
While we don’t count the Amway Canadian Championship games in our system — only league games — Whitecaps

Russell Teibert deserves praise for being named the tournament MVP last week. But, in a good news/bad news scenario, he was the only Canadian to start for either the Whitecaps or Impact in the second leg of the final.

Currently, in NASL and MLS combined, there are only 10 Canadians who have hit the 1,000-minutes-played mark (or just over 11 full games of action).

Here are the updated minutes:
