After a forgettable match, Canada improved significantly to face France, as they had lost 4-0 to the Netherlands with a completely disjointed performance.

This time, the Canadians showed a much better performance, managing to secure a draw against one of the best teams in the world, where the top soccer star, Kylian Mbappe, only played for 16 minutes in the 0-0 draw.

Laryea and Osorio Playing Against France

For the Toronto FC players, this was an unforgettable match. Head coach Jesse Marsch gave them playing time in such an important game ahead of the Copa America. Richie Laryea came on in the 63rd minute for Alistair Johnston, while Osorio came on in the 71st minute for Cyle Larin.

Richie Laryea played 28 minutes, with 20 touches of the ball and an 88% passing accuracy (7/8), with 2 of those passes in the final third of the pitch. He also won 50% of his slide tackles (1/2), having a more impressive game and representing Toronto FC well.

Jonathan Osorio had a less participative game, playing for 20 minutes. He struggled to make an impact in the midfield, losing possession 5 times due to the intensity of the match and the difficulty of covering his position.

Canada ended this FIFA window with a draw and a loss, ahead of the Copa America starting on June 20th against Argentina. The Toronto FC players are hoping to secure a spot in Jesse Marsch's team to contribute in the best possible way for their national team.
