D.C. United fans chanted “we want four” with 20 minutes remaining in the U.S. capital.

After Nick Hagglund’s own goal put the Toronto FC down 3-0 at D.C. United on Wednesday night, fans wanted more. They were hoping the black and red would make it more embarrassing than it already was.

This after the Reds played one of their best games in recent memory over the weekend against visiting Kansas City.

Four days later, the Reds put in one of their worst performances in a debilitating loss to one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference.

“It was extremely disappointing,” head coach Ryan Nelsen said post-game. “In both boxes we weren’t good enough.

Toronto has lost back-to-back games against the East’s top teams in less than a week — something that’s enabled Sporting KC and D.C. to put distance between them and TFC.

There were some similarities between those two defeats.
