Canada's soccer-playing hockey fans take to social media following victory over US | SIDELINE

It was a big day for Canadian hockey fans Friday – even ones who play soccer.

That was especially true for MLS’ Canadian teams, with all three taking to social media to show support for their countrymen after their 1-0 victory over the United States in the semifinals of the Winter Olympics hockey tournament in Sochi, Russia.

Toronto FC’s fellow Canadian national teamers Dwayne De Rosario, Jonathan Osorio, Ashtone Morgan and assistant coach and former player Jim Brennan were captured on video taking time out of their preseason preparations in Orlando, Fla., where they are competing in the Disney Pro Soccer Classic, to take in the game.

And they were apparently quite into it.
