TORONTO - Jermain Defoe and Luke Moore scored and Toronto FC snapped its three-game losing streak with a 2-0 win over the New York Red Bulls on Saturday.

The 31-year-old Defoe, who has 19 goals and 55 caps for his country, was relegated to England's seven-man World Cup taxi squad on Monday. Defoe, who could still be called up in the event of an injury, admitted to being baffled by his omission from the 23-man main England squad.

Defoe made his case on the pitch Saturday, showcasing his ability to find space.

On a day where Arsenal won the FA Cup at Wembley, former Gunners star Thierry Henry -- while showing flashes of his brilliance -- was relegated to a supporting role as the Red Bulls had their 10-game unbeaten streak against Toronto snapped.
