"You always know that to break the game open, you're going to need that extra bit of sharpness, extra bit of quality, or a little bit of a break, a bounce or a deflection," Toronto midfielder Michael Bradley said. "Obviously, they got that today, and they were able then to use that to get the second goal."
"When July came around and we finally felt like we had our group back together, everybody was back from the Gold Cup, we'd started to add a few new faces, that was more or less the halfway point," Bradley said. "And everybody looked at each other and understood that if we wanted to have a real chance at the end of the season that we had no time to waste. So we had to take every game and play it like it was a playoff game and our season was on the line because that was our reality at that point."
