Important Minutes for TFC Players with the Canadian National Team

Jonathan Osorio played all 90 minutes, standing out with his excellent passing ability. With 67 touches in the match, he achieved an 84% pass completion rate, including 6 key passes in the final third. He also contributed defensively with 2 interceptions and 5 ball recoveries throughout the match.

Richie Laryea, another Toronto FC player, played a total of 75 minutes. He remains a crucial player on the left wing for the team. Although his attacking contributions were not as prominent in this match, his absence is already felt by TFC during this part of the season.

We hope to see a focused Canada in the quarterfinals, continuing their strong performance to go far in this Copa America. They have represented Central America well with good football, even challenging the World Champions, Argentina.

The quarterfinal match is likely to take place on Friday, July 5. While awaiting their opponent, Canada must focus on dominating possession and ensuring their forwards capitalize on clear chances. The Toronto FC players continue to get minutes, which is good news as they are eagerly awaited back at Herdman's struggling MLS side.
