El Salvadoran side CD Aguila were the consummate guests in their visit to BMO Field last night for their CONCACAF Champions League opener against Toronto FC.
They held the deepest defensive line imaginable, allowing TFC to make themselves comfortable in midfield, and their defenders kept a courteous distance from Reds attackers in the final third, letting them tee up shots at a practice-session pace (see Reggie Lambe’s 48th-minute strike).
It looked like Emily Post designed their game plan, and the lopsided scoreline could have been worse.
Check it out:
Big nights for TFC youngsters Lambe (two goals), Ashtone Morgan (two assists), and Luis Silva (goal, two assists).
Toronto returns to CCL action on Aug 28, when they host Santos Laguna and U.S. international Herculez Gomez.
