Vancouver Whitecaps v Toronto FC – A Voyageurs Cup Story In Pictures

Vancouver Whitecaps v Toronto FC – A Voyageurs Cup Story In Pictures

To quote the words of a Welsh legend:

“It’s a heartache
Nothing but a heartache
Hits you when it’s too late
Hits you when you’re down

It’s a fool’s game
Nothing but a fools game
Standing in the cold rain
Feeling like a clown”

The words of Bonnie Tyler there from 1977. Seem very apt today for Whitecaps fans, players and their Welsh coach.

Nicolas Mezquida and Tim Parker gave Vancouver Whitecaps a fine victory over Toronto FC at BC Place on Wednesday night in the Canadian Championship final second leg.

AFTN photographer Tom Ewasiuk was there to capture all the action before, during and after the game and here’s his “Story In Pictures”, with a full Flickr slideshow at the end.

Curva’s Champions of Canada tifo


The match winners


Scarves up Southsiders


Carl Robinson clearly disgusted by shit haircuts


Christian Bolanos fires one over in the first half


Then Matias Laba tests Alex Bono with a fierce shot just before the half


Two minutes into the second half, substitute Nicolas Mezquida gets his head on a cross


And heads home the opening goal of the night


Andrew Jacobson nearly makes it two but just can’t connect at the back post


But in the 67th minute Tim Parker shows fantastic control in the box when he brings down a Matias Laba dipping pass


And coolly slots past Bono to double the Whitecaps lead


Shock and awe


Goalscorers united


Blas Perez nearly makes it three in stoppage time but sees his effort agonisingly crash off the left post
