Toronto FC let one slip away late.

A goal in the third minute of injury time by Bradley Wright-Phillips gave the New York Red Bulls a 2-2 tie in Harrison, N.J., last night as the two sides returned to action following their World Cup break.

The goal was set up by a fabulous header by Tim Cahill. The Australian international, who scored twice at the World Cup, started the match on the bench but came on in the 77th minute. Wright-Phillips delivered a shot just on the left side of the TFC goal that goalkeeper Joe Bendik has no chance on.

Toronto FC had not played for 20 days due to the break for the World Cup. But it played an energetic, entertaining and ambitious offensive match while maintaining a solid defensive presence to extend their unbeaten streak to five games.

Its second goal scored in the 70th minute averted what could well have turned into a really sticky issue in their clubhouse today.
