TORONTO---Toronto FC held their own, playing to a 1-1 draw against Liverpool FC in front of 33087
In a World Football Challenge match at Rogers Center Saturday night.
Quincy Amarwika gave the Reds the lead in the 58th minute poking in a rebound after a long shot by Sergio Camargo forced a diving save by Liverpool goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi.
The lead was short lived, however, as Liverpool tied it up in the 69th minute. Adam Morgan slammed in a ball across the box by Raheem Sterling that appeared destined for the far post anyway.
