Vancouver faces steep climb against TFC


The Vancouver Whitecaps' goal for Tuesday is simple: The United Soccer Leagues First Division team needs to defeat Toronto FC at BMO Field to keep alive its hopes of advancing to the CONCACAF Champions League tournament.
“We can't sit back and wait for [TFC] to make mistakes and [we] will need to put the pressure on them from the opening whistle,” Whitecaps defender Steve Kindel said.

“We need to go for some goals here. We are minus-four in the tournament in goal differential, so if we have any chance of advancing in this competition, we will need to put the ball in the back of the net.”
The Whitecaps have lost both their Canadian Championship matches to the Montreal Impact by identical 2-0 scores, including last Wednesday's loss in Burnaby B.C.
