If a soccer game had 60 minutes to play they would have won by now. Santos killed TFC in just 30 minutes. 2 dumb fouls in the box led to 2 easy penalty goals for Santos and things went downhill from that point.
0-7, losing to RSL today 2-3. Now matching the MLS all-time record for the worst start ever.
To be fair, playing at Salt Lake City is never easy, altitude and such. TFC didn't expect to have a good result on this. They actually played well enough to be at 2-2 until they conceded the final goal 30 seconds before the whistle!!
TFC finally got their first win of the MLS season, beating Philadelphia Union at home, 1-0, and it is Danny Koevermans, the guy who labelled his own team as "the worst team in the world" days ago, who scored the winning goal.
Okay, TFC has to play against Santos Laguna again, but this time in the group stage where the format is changed into 8 group of three teams and only top teams are qualified. Since TFC is a second seed, being drawn into a Mexican team instead of fellow MLS teams is a death sentence.
They could just concentrate on MLS game anyway.....
3 TFC players; Miguel Aceval, Luis Silva and Nick Soolsma were arrested at a pub in Houston for public intoxication early Monday morning. They, reportedly Silva and Aceval, were so drunk they had a fight outside the pub and refused to comply with Houston local police. Silva also tried to run away.
