I had been looking forward to see Toronto’s dynamic trio of Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco. But was disappointed as Bradley missed the game through injury, Altidore was sent off after 39 minutes for kicking out at Jose Goncalves and Giovinco was invisible, starved of service in the first half with only 11 touches and was replaced at half time.
