Toronto FC expects physical game with NYCFC

--

TORONTO - Toronto FC has played New York City FC just once but the rivalry already runs deep.

In their first meeting, a 2-0 win at BMO Field on June 20, the expansion New Yorkers hacked away at Toronto star Sebastian Giovinco. And Toronto defender Damien Perquis, irate at a perceived cheap shot, had to be restrained after the game.

Toronto (7-7-2) expects more of the same at Yankee Stadium on Sunday when England star Frank Lampard is scheduled to make his MLS debut for New York City FC (5-8-5). Italian star Andrea Pirlo is waiting in the New York wings.

"Maybe I'm a bad boy for the (committee) but I know who I am and I am a good boy," the French-born Perquis said with a hint of a smile.

Perquis was fined by the league for his post-game attempt to get at New York City FC midfielder Andrew Jacobson.

Video is not conclusive but it appears Perquis was not totally innocent in the matter. Jacobson did send Perquis to the ground with a forearm to the back in a melee in front of goal but it appeared that the Toronto player had been reaching for his crotch seconds before.

Vanney says his defender has put the incident behind him.

"What I've learned about Damien is in the heat of the moment, he can be very emotional," said Vanney. …
