TFC's coach has confirmed the players who will not be available to participate in the match against Simcoe Country Rovers FC this coming April 24th.

Among the absences, the absence of Italian footballer Lorenzo Insigne stands out significantly, who seems to still be sidelined for several matches for Toronto FC.

These footballers will miss the match against Simcoe Country:

  • Insigne: Thigh
  • Laryea: Thigh
  • O'Neill: Thigh
  • Servania: Knee
  • Kerr: Foot

This debut represents a special match for The Reds, where it is always important to reach this stage of competing for the Canadian championship. In this first round, a great victory is expected, where the team led by John Herdman can demonstrate great footballing ability to start this tournament on the right foot.

TFC must show what they are made of

Toronto FC comes into this match having obtained a very important victory at BMO Field, in a tough match against New England Revolution, where Prince Owusu was the player who secured the victory by the minimum score of 1-0. This match was a very important turning point for the club, after ending a streak of 3 consecutive defeats in the MLS, and bouncing back is very important for The Reds.

The match will be played this coming April 24th at 9:30 PM (Canada Time) where the atmosphere at BMO Field will be very enticing to face the highly anticipated Toronto FC vs Simcoe. The latter are the reigning champions of the Ontario League 1, where the competition may not be the most notable, but the match promises that the visitors will come hungry for victory and TFC will have to prove what they are made of.
