Torres lifts Chivas USA past Toronto FC
It was Torres’ first game for Chivas USA after he was acquired last week on loan from Club Deportivo Guadalajara.
The 20-year-old forward got a pass from Tristan Bowen in the 79th minute, cut inside against three defenders, and then fired at the goal from outside Toronto’s box. The ball deflected off defender Gale Agbossoumonde and bounced inside the right post.
Toronto (2-10-7) has won just once in its last 17 games.
Torres also had a great scoring chance in the 60th minute, with a look at an open net after Bowen’s low cross from the right wing got past three defenders. Torres hesitated, and goalkeeper Joe Bendik somehow got a piece of the ball, deflecting it away.
Former U.S. national team captain Carlos Bocanegra also made his first appearance for Chivas. He was signed on July 1 after nearly a decade in Europe.
