For the first time in a while, we’re able to say that Toronto FC are entering tonight’s match on a high, feeling good after Wednesday’s dramatic 3-2 win over Atlanta United. This evening, they’ll try to keep that good feeling going as they take on D.C. United at Audi Field.
DCU is a pretty good team this year, sitting tied for second (with Montreal) in the Eastern Conference. Much of their success is, of course, down to the incomparable Wayne Rooney.
Wazza hasn’t been showing his age, with nine goals and four assists this season. By now, everyone has surely seen it, but just in case, here’s the absolute belter of a goal he scored on Wednesday:

United has also been a very good defensive side, with just 18 goals allowed (fourth-best in MLS). Centre-backs Frédéric Brilliant and Steve Birnbaum are largely the reason for that, as is goalkeeper Bill Hamid, with eight clean sheets.
TFC have already seen D.C. this season, playing out a dull 0-0 draw at BMO Field in May. Hopefully, after such an exciting game on Wednesday, this one has a little more to offer than the last meeting between these sides.
The Reds are, of course, still short a few important pieces away at the Gold Cup, as well as injuries. Is this going to be the Jacob Shaffelburg show again?
Team news: injuries, suspensions & international duty
Toronto FC: Drew Moor is out for this one with injury, but it sounds like both Chris Mavinga and Auro could be ready to return. Of course, Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore, Jonathan Osorio, Ashtone Morgan, and Noble Okello are all still at the Gold Cup with the USA and Canada.
D.C. United: Defenders Oniel Fisher, Chris Odoi-Atsem, and Joseph Mora are sidelined with injury. Paul Arriola (USA) and Junior Moreno (Venezuela) are off on international duty.
