Júlio César keeps his first clean sheet for Toronto FCJúlio César has enjoyed a positive start to life at the Canadian club
Despite only winning six games throughout the whole of last season, the MLS side have now won their opening two games of this campaign.
A 1-0 victory at home to DC United saw Toronto FC’s perfect start continue in front of a sell-out crowd of over 22,000.
Brazilian goalkeeper Júlio César more than played his part.
The 34-year-old’s clearance downfield eventually found its way to compatriot Gilberto, whose shot fell kindly into the path of strike-partner Jermaine Defoe to slot home in the 60th minute.
Manager Ryan Nelsen is preaching caution at this early stage of the franchise’s eighth season.
“I don’t think we’re a top team right now. We’re very well organised but I don’t think we’ve seen the best of us. You won’t see the best of us because we’re still new,” said the former QPR player.
“I think we still have a long way to go as a team.”
“We’ll play better than that probably and lose games,” he added.
