Lorenzo Insigne forced out with injury just 34 minutes into Toronto FC's season opener against D.C. United
- Insigne forced out early
- Leaves with a limp after less than a half
- Key piece of new-look Toronto FC
WHAT HAPPENED? Insigne was replaced by Ayo Akinola after just 34 minutes with TFC already down 1-0 thanks to a goal from Mateusz Klich. The Italian star had pulled up with limping moments prior.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Insigne, the highest-paid player in MLS, is obviously a key figure for Toronto FC, who made several offseason moves to help make a push back towards the league's elite. An Insigne injury would be a major concern for Bob Bradley's side, even with the presence of fellow Italian Federico Bernardeschi on the other wing.
