It’s been 10 years in the making, and Toronto FC finally have their first-ever goal in the MLS Cup Playoffs. After failing to qualify for the playoffs in each of their first eight seasons, 2015 saw the Reds venture into the postseason for the first time ever, only to be thumped in the knockout round, 3-0, by their 401 derby rival Montreal Impact, of all sides. This is the year, though, or so we’ve said and been told all season long. While it remains to be seen how deep of a run TFC can muster in 2016, they’ll always have the Jozy Altidore‘s terrible first touch; Altidore’s wayward second and third touches; Altidore’s overhead cross; and Sebastian Giovinco’s strike, all of which you can watch
Jozy Altidore scored the clincher for Toronto, while Alan Gordon got L.A.’s opening goal. It took nine years for Toronto FC to reach Major League Soccer’s playoffs, in spite of deep pools of cash splashed on players every year. In a flat first half, the Torontonians scraped and clawed and got a scrappy first goal.
