Sebastian Giovinco - Toronto FC - Close up

Toronto FC announced on Monday that star striker Sebastian Giovinco and starting defender Nick Hagglund will miss several weeks due to injuries sustained in Saturday’s 3-2 win over Minnesota United.


Giovinco limped out of the match shortly before halftime with what has been diagnosed as a quadriceps strain; he is expected to miss three weeks of action. The Italian – who opened the scoring with a penalty kick conversion – had just returned from a heel injury that kept him out of Wednesday’s 2-1 win at Columbus.


Hagglund’s news is worse; he sustained a torn MCL in his left knee and has been ruled out for 8-12 weeks.


Regarded as one of the deepest teams in MLS, TFC are currently riding a six-game winning streak and return to match play with a visit to the New York Red Bulls on Friday (7:30 pm ET | TSN in Canada, MLS LIVE in US).
