New, comments

Toronto FC broke their three game winless streak with a 2-1 victory against the Philadelphia Union.

Toronto FC successfully held off the Philadelphia Union on Saturday as Sebastian Giovinco further made his case for the league MVP. After a slow start Toronto dominated most of the remainder of the match, save for a late goal ruined their clean sheet and match it 2-1.

Scorching heat around the stadium made it so the match wasn't exactly fluent, but at the end of it Toronto had a crucial three points. Toronto are momentarily tied for second in Major League Soccer with the win, with the same amount of points as the Columbus Crew who they play next week.

Marky Delgado opened the scoring for Toronto FC with his second goal in as many games. Sebastian Giovinco set up that goal, and scored another himself just three minutes later as he now has 12 on the season. Connor Casey had the lone goal for Philadelphia.

Further analysis of the match will be up shortly, until then enjoy this well worked goal from Toronto FC.
