FC hit with injuries to stars
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.
