Midfielders

Toronto FC. WILL JOHNSON. 6.5. While he passed the ball pretty well, he also committed two fouls and didn’t put in a hard-working shift. Giovinco needed the midfield to create more chances, but they were noticeably absent, and he was left to do most of the work himself. Will Johnson has really helped shore up the center of the pitch this year, and is usually more active on the ball, but the same can’t be said this time.. CM

8. Toronto’s second best player on the pitch. He had a passing rate of 85%, assisted on Seba’s 2-2 goal, and collected three interceptions. He saw the most touches out of anyone else on his team, and took to the task of moving the ball forward and creating chances. Perhaps it was fitting that, on heritage night, it was the designated players who were the only ones that made a significant contribution.. CM. Toronto FC. MICHAEL BRADLEY

Toronto FC. JONATHAN OSORIO. 6.5. In his first start since the 401 Derby, you can give Osorio a pass for not playing up to his standards, but he could’ve stepped up more when the team was in dire straits. His passing was good, but not as good as some of his teammates, while he got dispossessed and committed two fouls. His getting subbed off for Jay Chapman when they needed an equalizer indicates that Greg Vanney didn’t like what he saw and didn’t trust him enough to keep the pressure on Vancouver.. CM

6.5. While Tsubasa Endoh has shown promise this season, and has proved to be good enough to keep on the senior team, his performances have been fairly inconsistent. On one night, you’ll get a game like he had against FC Dallas, where he was lively on the ball, created chances, and even potted a goal. Then there’s tonight, where his decision-making wasn’t as good, his passing was off, and he was outclassed by Pedro Morales. He might not have lasted the full 90 minutes had Vanney not been forced to use one of his substitutions on Altidore.. CAM. Toronto FC. TSUBASA ENDOH

On the whole, it was a disappointing evening for Toronto FC midfielders not named Michael Bradley. Hopefully, they’ll get back on track in the next game.
