Nguyen opened the scoring for New England in the 82nd minute with his 50th career goal, taking Chris Tierney’s lead pass from midfield and finishing through a defensive deflection.

Toronto FC’s Nicolas Hasler answered two minutes later with a right-footed volley of Michael Bradley’s diagonal cross.

Forwards Sebastian Giovinco and Jozy Altidore missed the match for Toronto FC, both due to lower body tightness.
