After losing in another MLS Cup to the Seattle Sounders, Toronto FC are looking to get back to the dance in 2020. Here is their predicted starting XI for the season ahead.
Toronto FC head coach Greg Vanney is going to have a very difficult time choosing his starting XI this season. He has an overabundance of talented veterans and youth players at his disposal who deserve to start for the team. From new talent brought into the squad this offseason to the development of players already in the team, there is a vast array of different set-ups that Vanney could take.
From a formation perspective, it seems as though Greg Vanney wants to use a 4-3-3 shape. It suits the roster and players available, while adding the width that he so desperately desires in attack. It has also been the bread and butter of modern football, and of Vanney’s success with Toronto.
So, with that in mind, here is Toronto FC’s predicted starting XI for the 2020 season.
Starting in goal, of course, is Quentin Westberg. He had a phenomenal season after he joined the club midway through the year. His ball control skills and distribution have been invaluable and essential to Toronto FC’s build-up play and while Alex Bono could challenge for the role, it is very much Westberg’s position to lose.
