Also on Saturday, Toronto was playing host to Juventus of Italy and Sporting Club of Portugal. Sporting took the lead in the 13th minute as Yannick Djalo converts from in close.

And Djalo would give the Sporting supporters in attendance another reason to roar 23 minutes later. He holds off his defender and fired a left-footed shot just inside that far post to double Sporting's advantage.

A perfectly-placed shot as Sporting went up 2-0 against the Serie A side.

In the second half, this game would get chippy. 77th minute and Luca Toni charged at Fabian Andres Rinaudo and immediately received a yellow card. As Sporting pleaded for a red, tempers flared and players on both sides began pushing and shoving. No punches were thrown and no more cards were handed out.

Play would eventually resume and Juventus finally made it on to the scoreboard. Jorge Martinez threaded a pass to Alessandro del Piero on the right wing. Del Piero took his time before chipping.
