Toronto FC Makes MLS a Perfect 5-for-5 in CCL Group Play Openers

Toronto FC have struggled this season in MLS play—they’re 4-11-11 and all but eliminated from the postseason, a place they’ve never been in four-plus years of existence—but they’ve overhauled their roster (again) and the new group has plenty to play for in the CONCACAF Champions League.

The Reds opened their Group C slate down in Panama City last night, and got goals from Ryan Johnson and Julian de Guzman two minutes apart in the first half, then held off their hosts, Tauro FC, in a nervy second half to lock down a 2-1 win.

Highlights:

There was a downside to the win, though, as Toronto’s Dutch striker Danny Koevermans left the game in the 57th minute with an apparent leg injury. He will be evaluated today.
