- Want to know, Brad, is this kind of game you expected tonight?

- Well, I thought Toronto FC started brightly. They got the early goal and I think that deflated this New York Red Bull team, and Toronto were the better team for the rest of the half. But they got a late penalty and tied it up 1-1.

In the second half, New York Red Bull came out. Kemar Lawrence went forward. Tyler Adams went forward. They had more possession in the middle of midfield and it has to be said, Toronto FC scored against the run of play.

Tremendous free kick, yes, but you knew that they were going to counterattack. You knew you had to be disciplined and not commit a foul. Giovinco is one of the very best, not just in MLS, in the world, on hitting free kicks, and they paid for it.

Now, two away goals for Toronto. Going back to Toronto, difficult to win in Toronto. They scored 74 goals in the regular season. They won the Supporters' Shield. Now you're going to play them on their home turf with a lot of confidence. Going to be very difficult for New York Red Bull.
