- Toronto FC 0, Vancouver Whitecaps 1 (Ricketts’ 90)
- TFC has collected 2 points from 6 road games in 2022
- Nelson’s 2nd-half goal for TFC controversially not given
An under-strength Toronto FC left Vancouver on Sunday afternoon empty-handed and feeling a little aggrieved.
Former TFC player Tosaint Ricketts came off the bench in the 85th minute and scored the game winner five minutes later off a setup from fellow substitute Lucas Cavallini, as Toronto dropped a 1-0 decision to the Whitecaps at BC Place.
The loss against its Canadian rival was especially bitter for Toronto, as Jayden Nelson appeared to have scored a perfectly legitimate goal in the 66th minute that was controversially not given by the referee, whose decision was not deemed to be a clear and obvious mistake by the VAR booth. Alejandro Pozuelo also failed to convert from the 12-yard spot in the first half, marking the first time this season that TFC were awarded a penalty.
