TORONTO (AP) — Jozy Altidore came off the bench to score the winner in the 80th minute and Toronto FC beat the New England Revolution 3-2 on Sunday night in its home opener.
Altidore tapped in Justin Morrow’s cross. Shut down late last season to have ankle surgery, the U.S. star came on in the 68th minute for his season debut.
Ayo Akinola, with his first MLS goal, and Jordan Hamilton, on his 23rd birthday, also scored for Toronto (2-0-0). Carles Gil scored twice to pull the Revolution (0-2-1) even at 2.
