TFC advanced in the CONCACAF Champions League preliminary round play with a 2-1 win over Real Esteli of Nicaragua (4-2 aggregate for TFC).  Game was played on Aug. 3/'11. in Nicaragua.  TFC now advances to the group stage, which includes Mexico's Pumas. Panama's Tauro, FC Dallas or El Salvador's Alianza.


It was TFC's first ever win on foreign turf in  CONCACAF action.

DC a man down almost the whole game and we still cant eek out a win.... some things never change

seahawk:
Not to thrilled with the result. Having a man advantage for 90 minutes (83 regulation + 7 stoppage) and only getting a draw is a disappointment. However, there were enough twists and turns to make this game very interesting to watch. JDG scores for TFC, his first goal for the club and even that came on a strange play which led to DC Manager Ben Olsen getting sent to the stands. I still think that the back four is the big problem with this team. Andy Iro just got whipped like a government mule on all 3 DC goals, especially the penalty.

hockeyfan1:
Looks like the TFC will be without it's top netminder, Stefan Frei, for today's match-up at home versus Real Salt Lake.  Frei is currently tending to a minor knee injury.

TFC coach Aron Winter seems quite confident in going with back-up, Milos Kocic, against one of the league's premier offensive teams.  "Winter added: "We have all the confidence in Milos".
