Toronto FC planning to improve MLS record after Canadian triumph

Toronto FC hope to take their Canadian cup form into upcoming MLS matches as they look to resurrect their season.

The Reds sit bottom of Major League Soccer with a record of zero wins and nine losses but on Wednesday became Canadian champions for the fourth straight season courtesy of a 1-0 win over Vancouver Whitecaps in the Amway Canadian Championship.

Goalkeeper Milos Kocic admits it was a weird feeling but admits it could be the perfect tonic for the club to get things back on track domestically.

"You lose nine games and all of a sudden you're a champion," he said.

"It's kind of like a different mentality in the locker room right now. You can hear everybody's happy, everybody's laughing. We need to celebrate, we need to feel happy inside.

"You need to feel good about this kind of stuff because we haven't won too many games this year. I think this is a good beginning for us. We can take it as a positive and bring it to the next game.

"There's always a way to turn your season around and I think this is a beginning of it… I hope we realize that this is a great turning point for us."
