Toronto FC ready for first exhibition game
ORLANDO, Fla. - New coach Ryan Nelsen says training camp is going according to plan for Toronto FC.
The former New Zealand international defender sees his squad in game action for the first time Saturday when TFC plays the Columbus Crew at the Walt Disney World Pro Soccer Classic.
The Montreal Impact play Sporting Kansas City in the second game at the Orlando tournament.
Nelsen hopes to give as many players as possible time on the field against Columbus.
He has all his players at his disposal, other than the injured Danny Koevermans and Logan Emory.
While Toronto was dealing with a snowstorm back home, Toronto FC players were lathering on sunscreen at practice under searing sun Friday.
