Reactions from Toronto FC: 

Coach Vanney “Obviously, nobody knew for sure. We had an idea it could be a special night, in terms of atmosphere, emotion – in some ways 10 years of emotion, coming out in one night. Every person who came into this stadium tonight came because this club, this city, has never seen a soccer game of this importance. We used every bit of that to our advantage.” 

Captain Bradley: “We felt it all week. I dropped my son off at school this morning and every kid that walked into that elementary school had a TFC jersey on, and most of the parents as well. You could feel it in the city, that people have really taken notice, people are proud, excited, tonight was a special night. Ten days from now, we want to do one better.

Every single guy at this club has chosen to be at this club, and has chosen to be here for a reason. We see unbelievable potential: a city, a market, a fan base, a stadium, a training ground. Every box gets checked. There are other clubs that check a lot of boxes; I’m not sure there’s another that checks every box.”
