Ottawa Fury FC vs Toronto FC - Canadian Championship Leg 1
This is the battle Ottawa Fury FC have been priming themselves for this year. Ever since the start of the season the possible Canadian Championship semi-final against Toronto FC has been a major talking point. And now the time has finally arrived for Fury FC to test their mettle against their famed MLS opponents. The first leg of the semi-final will be played this Wednesday at TD Place.
Right from the onset, the Canadian Championship has been identified as the most important competition by Fury FC. The Ottawa side is at the forefront on promoting Canadian talent and this tournament provides a great platform for the club to showcase their potential. Fury FC’s roster has 65 per cent Canadian players (17 of 26). In their last USL game, seven of the starting eleven were Canadian.
It’s with this focus that Fury FC will take on Toronto FC. All the Fury FC players are geared up for this crucial game. They produced two clinical wins over AS Blainville in the preliminary rounds to get to the semi-final. The dressing room will be in buoyant mood right now after their 2-1 win over Penn FC in their USL campaign. It was the first time this season that they have come from a goal down to register a victory.
