Toronto FC knew their match against Tottenham would not be easy. The match was even more difficult for forward, Jermain Defoe. His first match against his old club would be something he will always remember.
Playing against a former team is never easy, especially a team where a player gave so much of their time and life to.
Tonight’s match gave fans of MLS and EPL soccer so much to be excited about. The match produced so much excitement from every possible angle. In the end, it would be Tottenham that would take the match, 3-2.
After scoring two goals in the first half, Tottenham did not think that Toronto FC would make as big a come back as the team did. It would take a lot of hard work, but TFC would find two goals from the unlikeliest of players.
Andrew Weidman scored Toronto’s first goal off a cool finish in front of goal in the 66th minute. It would be just seven minutes later, when TFC academy grad, Jordan Hamilton, would score the second goal of the match.
With the match tied at 2-2, it appeared things would be headed to penalty kicks. Then, in the 86th minute, Tottenham would find the match winner, thanks to Townsend, who blasted a ball to the top corner, ultimately winning the match for his club.
Toronto FC sat many of their star players tonight, because of bigger matches coming up. TFC has a lot to work on, but overall, seeing goals from non-typical scorers, is very refreshing for Ryan Nelsen and his club.
