The 2016 MLS season is now officially over. Saturday’s MLS Cup Final was far from the game many had hoped for, with Seattle Sounders and Toronto playing out a disappointing 0-0 after 120 minutes of action, but history was made at the end at BMO Field.
Seattle lifted a first ever MLS Cup title after edging past Toronto in a tense penalty shootout, with centre-back Roman Torres slotting in the winning penalty to send the travelling Sounders fans into raptures.
Toronto captain Michael Bradley missed in the shootout, but it was Justin Morrow’s shot that cannoned off the crossbar which allowed Torres to seal the victory.
