Toronto FC's Julio Cesar claims MLS Save of the Week with reaction save in defeat vs. FC Dallas

Oscar Pareja is probably still wondering how Júlio César made that stop.

Cesar won Week 7's MLS Save of the Week award on Friday for his great reaction block on a powerful header from David Texeira. The Toronto FC goalkeeper denied Texeira following a corner kick shortly before halftime, but it wasn't enough to keep the FCD from claiming a 2-1 win at Toyota Park.

The Brazilian international's stop earned 63.24 of the week's vote, crushing the field of competition that included two seperate candidates from Real Salt Lake Nick Rimando.

Final Votes - Week 7:

1. Júlio César (TOR): 63.24%
2. Nick Rimando on Fernandez (RSL): 18.56%
3. Nick Rimando on Powell (RSL): 12.3%
4. Bobby Shuttleworth (NE): 3.9%
5. Jaime Penedo (LA): 2.01%
