Following Toronto FC's 3-1 victory over FC Dallas, post-match statements were inevitable, and it was crucial for the media to hear from coach John Herdman about how the team performed in this match, but above all, the significant contribution made by the Italian to break a negative goal-scoring streak this season.

"I really enjoy working with Fede; there are so many different layers to him. I asked him to stay focused on his leadership. As I keep telling him, if you keep focusing on shaping your leadership, good things happen to good leadership, and the universe turns, and that's what happened."

John Herdman declared this after the important victory of TFC experienced, recognizing in a great way the work Federico Bernardeschi has done throughout 2024 and how sooner or later the goals would come for the Italian, as it happened on the night of May 4th in Toronto FC's victory.

"He's been lifting that left foot for almost a year and a half, hasn't he? waiting for that. But it was a beautiful goal and one that only he can score in this league."

Bernardeschi's finish for TFC's second goal in the 52nd minute was crucial to give more tranquility to the match against Dallas, but above all, it was a fantastic goal that only a footballer of the Italian's caliber can convert and bring joy to the fans with a shot of that quality.

The night for the MVP of the match was incredible, with remarkable statistics that contribute both to his individual stats as a player and to helping TFC continue to collect points in the Eastern Conference, currently occupying the 3rd position in this group where victories are becoming a habit for The Reds.

The journey is still long, and in these first 11 MLS matches, Toronto FC is establishing itself as a dangerous team to enter the playoffs, and their focus must be greater than others' to achieve that goal this season.
