Toronto snapped a 10-game winless streak with a 1-0 home triumph over the Vancouver Whitecaps in the MLS on Wednesday.
The Canadian club had slipped to the bottom of the Eastern Conference, but managed to climb to sixth with the slender victory, recorded in front of their home fans at the BMO Field.
Earlier in the day the club announced that had it signed two ‘designated players’, with German midfielder Torsten Frings and Dutch forward Danny Koevermans inking deals with the MLS outfit.
And the good news just kept coming for Toronto fans as they recorded a badly-needed victory.
The first 45 minutes failed to produce a goal as both sides went into the break level but nine minutes after the break, that all changed.
In his fourth appearance for the club, Dutch forward Nick Soolsma scored the all-important goal and despite some nervy moments towards the end, including several saves by goalkeeper Stefan Frei, Aron Winter’s side held on for the win.
