Tyrone Marshall was one of six internationals back with Toronto FC for training on Friday morning. The Reds defender returned to Toronto late Thursday after playing for Jamaica in World Cup Qualifying games against Mexico and Honduras. "I'm glad to be home," said Marshall. "It was a very good training session this morning. Everyone is glad to be back and in training today everyone was lively and buzzing. We're all ready for tomorrow's game and can't wait to get back out there."
"It's a game we have to win," said Marshall. "Columbus are the benchmark team in the league right now and it will be a good test of how good we are. If we can come out on top it is a good indication of how good our team can be. We want to keep our playoff chances alive so we have to go out there with a positive attitude and go out to win the game."
Marshall returns to Toronto after a disappointing week with Jamaica, losing both games. "We didn't achieve our objectives but the good thing is that we have three home games left and we still have a chance to qualify. We still have time to turn things around," he said.
Carlos Ruiz, Marvell Wynne, Julius James, Jarrod Smith and Jim Brennan also returned to training on Friday morning. Carl Robinson and Amado Guevara are still travelling back from international duty.
