FC hit with in­juries to stars

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

Toronto FC has got some un­wanted in­jury news about striker Se­bas­tian Giovinco and de­fender Nick Hag­glund.

Giovinco has been di­ag­nosed with a quad strain and is ex­pected to be out of the lineup for up to three weeks.

The news is worse for Hag­glund, who has a torn me­dial col­lat­eral liga­ment in his left knee. He is ex­pected to be out eight to 12 weeks.

Both play­ers were forced to leave Satur­day’s 3-2 vic­tory over Min­nesota United, which stretched Toronto’s fran­chise-record win streak to six games.

Giovinco is tied with Jozy Alti­dore for the team lead in goals with six. Hag­glund has been a ma­jor part of Toronto’s back three, es­pe­cially in the ab­sence of in­jured vet­eran Drew Moor.
