Toronto FC goalkeeper Luka Gavran shared insights into the team's performance following their recent defeat against Sporting KC.

Based on their previous matches, Gavran noted the team's emphasis on defensive solidity, which had proven effective in the season's first five games. However, he acknowledged the need for a balance between defensive resilience and attacking prowess, a balance that proved elusive in their most recent outing.

Gavran highlighted the team's ambition to showcase their attacking capabilities and play attractive football, which sometimes left them vulnerable defensively. Despite conceding chances, particularly in the first half of the game, Gavran expressed pride in the team's ability to create opportunities and play fluidly in midfield.

"We prepared to really combine together and show that we can play some nice football. That, sometimes, kind of hurt us."

Gavran admitted that failing to capitalize on their chances and adapt to changes in the opponent's tactics ultimately cost them in the second half of the match.
