Toronto FC have made a habit of producing quality performances in recent season openers and Gregg Vanney’s men continued this trend with a resilient performance at Red Bull Arena.

Olsen outwits Nelsen as D.C. United end TFC's unbeaten streak

Yallop's tweaks earn the Chicago Fire a vital point against TFC
