Federico Bernardeschi’s goals in the 58th and 60th minute marked the two fastest goals scored by one player in club history with 108 seconds separating the two strikes. Bernardeschi’s third goal on Saturday was his 20th for the Reds since joining in July 2022, moving him into seventh on the club’s all-time goalscoring charts.

Deybi Flores earns his place, as a substitute, for his second Team of the Matchday selection of the season after an all-action performance on Saturday. Making his 13th MLS appearance of the campaign, Flores picked up his first MLS assist for Toronto FC with a defence-splitting pass to set up Bernardeschi in the 12th minute. The Honduran midfielder led TFC in passes (73) and successful passes (63), while also ranking second amongst the Reds’ in distance covered (10.69 km), ball actions (82) and high-speed runs (45) on the night.

In total, Toronto FC have now earned 14 MLS Team of the Matchday honours during the 2024 MLS regular season – Federico Bernardeschi (4), Sean Johnson (3), Lorenzo Insigne (2), Deybi Flores (2), Kevin Long (1), Prince Owusu (1) and Tyrese Spicer (1).
