David Accam on target in Chicago Fire 3-1 Defeat to Toronto FC


Ghana forward David Accam was on target on Friday night   at BMO in Chicago Fire 3-1 lost to Toronto FC in the Major Soccer League.

Accam scored a last minute consolation for his side as they slumped to a surprise defeat at Toronto.

After each team had an early finish ruled offside, Giovinco would get the hosts on the board in the 28th minute. The Italian collected the ball from Victor Vazquez at the top of the Fire 18-yard box and put a low shot past goalkeeper Jorge Bava to give Toronto a 1-0 lead.

Defender Eriq Zavaleta doubled the Toronto lead with his head four minutes later, finishing off a cross from Justin Morrow and giving the Canadian side a 2-0 lead they would carry into the break.

Giovinco would get his second goal in the 82nd minute. Toronto earned a foul within the Italian’s range outside the Fire area and his direct free kick attempt beat Bava to the upper corner.

The Fire would pull one back minutes later courtesy of second-half substitution David Accam.

Accam took the ball on the run in transition in the 88th minute, and the ensuing give-and-go with Luis Solignac inside the Toronto 18 ended with a cool finish from the Ghanaian forward.

The goal was Accam’s second of the season and capped scoring at 3-1.
