When Tyler Rosenlund found the net for his first career goal, Toronto FC looked well on its way to the most improbable victory in TFC’s brief history.
Then reality set in.
Playing with three players signed just for the match, Toronto couldn’t overcome the absence of eight starters to international duty. Their improbably 1-0 lead disappeared just 11 minutes later as Daniel Paladani scored the first of three Chivas USA goals as the Goats left Toronto with a 3-1 win.
TFC chief scout Tim Regan, Toronto Lynx defender Ricky Titus and Diaz Kambere all stepped into the Toronto lineup and tried their best, but this edition of Pros vs. Joes always seemed destined to go in favor of Chivas USA.
What did you think of the match? Was it what you expected? Did any of the fill-ins impress you? Still scratching your head at Toronto FC having to play the match?
