What went wrong!? Canadian MLS trio open 2023 season in defeat | OneNation Ep. 3
Welcome back to another episode of OneNation, our Canadian soccer podcast show hosted by Andi Petrillo and Jordan Wilson, where this week, we recap Canadian club performances as the 2023 Major League Soccer season kicks off over the weekend.
The big headline for Toronto FC? On first glance, maybe it'd be giving up a late (late!) goal to lose 3-2 to D.C. United... but the bigger concern is the status of Lorenzo Insigne, who looked distressed as he exited the match with an apparent injury at the half-hour mark. Will he be okay? This team needs him...
Meanwhile, the Vancouver Whitecaps struck first against Real Salt Lake as Vanni Sartini's side enjoyed a strong first half... only to capitulate in the second and concede twice en route to a 2-1 loss. But Vancouver fans will leave this match feeling good about the team's overall look, with fitness and consistency sure to come as the season blooms.
Finally, CF Montreal kicked off their 2023 season with a 2-0 loss to Inter Miami, as new head coach Hernan Losada returned to MLS action - and he wasn't the only new face at the club making his debut, as former CPL star Sean Rea got his first few minutes in Montreal bleu.
This episode of OneNation was filmed ahead of a major news announcement by Canada Soccer. Check back on Feb. 28 for our reaction to Dr. Nick Bontis' resignation as president of the CSA on OneSoccer Today (7PM ET / 4PM PT).
