Three games were enough for Bojan Krkic to show all the talent that led him to be once considered as Messi's successor. The former Barcelona player opened his MLS scoring count by netting one goal during the Canadian Classic against Toronto, which ended in a 2-1 loss for the Spaniard side.

Bojan landed at the MLS early August with the task of regaining his level, and lead Montreal's offensive line, and in his second Impact start, the Spaniard dared a 25-meter strike to open up the scoreboard at BMO Field.

Said goal broke an 11-month without scoring streak for Krkic, as the last time the 28-year-old player scored was on September 29th in the 2-2 draw between Stock City and Rotherham.

Bojan talked to EFE after the game where the attacker mentioned what passed through his mind before sending that strike. "It was hard for us to find that last pass so I decided to try it from afar, and it worked out well. We couldn't keep ourselves ahead on the scoreboard, but we have to keep some positive things and move on because there're many games left."
