Canada and Honduras square off in San Pedro Sula on Tuesday to see who receives the second qualifying spot out of the group.
It was an all-around downbeat night at BMO Field, with a quiet announced crowd of 14,623 that looked to be maybe half that size.
Canada will have little time to rest on its laurels as the next game is on Tuesday, a return fixture in Panama City. A win would almost guaranteed Canada a top-two finish in the group and advancement to the final qualifying round,.
That leaves the Reds’ Oct. 24 date at Estadio Corona as their last faint chance to win the group, and TFC would need not just a win, but in all likelihood a win by at least three or four goals.
With just 5,324 fans in attendance at BMO Field and no TV broadcaster airing the game, Toronto FC’s performance in its CONCACAF Champions League opener against CD Aguila could well become an urban legend.
