I was at the game tonight. TFC played much better than last two MLS games. Great defense against more skilled Santos Laguna but still couldn't finish.
And damn, Santos played like Mexican Barcelona, they used every single dirty soccer tricks in the bag! Flopping in every opportunities they got, tackling Ecks stud-first, and lastly a headbutt at the end of the game that led to a big scuffle!
American refs actually helped them though, waiving off Maund's push in the box and giving two reds at Santos players. Still, Koevermans also got booked and will be suspended next game in Mexico though.
At the end, anything better than a loss against Mexican teams can be considered a win at least to me.
