Toronto's One-To-Watch: Michael Bradley

With 2 World Cups and 9 years of European experience under his belt, Bradely is without a doubt one of Toronto's important men.

A midfielder with great positioning and strong leadership, he is able to make a difference when it comes to destroying enemy attacks and starting Toronto's offensives.

8:17 PM9 months ago

Seattle's One-To-Watch: Ruidíaz

A world-class striker is the correct form to describe Sounders' number 9.

The Peruvian has great technique and is able to find a way to score even in the most difficult matches. His quality is without a doubt as he has shown in MLS, Liga MX and his national team.
