MLS Cup Final 2017 Live Stream watch Online, Toronto FC vs. Seattle Sounders live stream info, TV channel: How to watch 2017 MLS Cup final on TV, stream online.
The 2017 MLS Cup is almost here. On Saturday, Toronto FC welcomes the Seattle Sounders to Canada for the final, which is a rematch of last year’s MLS Cup. The 2016 edition was won by Seattle on penalty kicks, but Toronto gets its shot at revenge after producing a spectacular regular season, finishing with 12 points more than any team in the league.
Toronto FC, for all its star power, for all its ambition, remains without a league title. The club is looking to mend that wrong, first and foremost, when the Seattle Sounders visit for Saturday’s MLS Cup final.
“It’s what this city has been dreaming of,” Toronto midfielder Jonathan Osorio said. “It’s what this club has been dreaming of.”
But if TFC puts that elusive star above its crest, the conversation should spread beyond talk of an overdue MLS crown. If anything, it would be a disservice to Toronto’s body of work in 2017 to simply lump this side in with the 21 past league champions.
No, this TFC team deserves to stand alone as the greatest in MLS history.
It wouldn’t even be that debatable, frankly. Toronto already managed to win the Supporters’ Shield in emphatic style, compiling the most points and the largest margin of victory in league history. While TFC would become just the seventh team to follow the Shield with an MLS Cup triumph, none of the Reds’ predecessors also managed to win the domestic cup — which Toronto did by claiming the Canadian Championship in June.
Another reporter asked Altidore what it felt like to watch Seattle celebrate last year’s win at BMO Field and whether that feeling had lingered. The answer to the first half of the question seemed pretty obvious but it elicited one of his longer responses.
