Including an unnamed player from either Toronto FC or DC United according to the MLS Twitter account which is why the game is canceled.
MLS postpones Toronto FC vs. DC United match.

I get the overreaching need to get back to sports but as Sean Doolittle said last week ‘Sports are the reward of a functional society and if there’s one thing the United States of America is right now, it’s non-functional.
ESPECIALLY in Florida.
Florida has 300,000 active cases of COVID19 averaging 10,000 infections a day and masks still arent’mandatory. TWO MLS teams have already withdrawn from the ‘MLS Is Back’ Cup and TFC hasn’t played a game yet so can we just stop trying?
I’m dead nuts serious too. My passing fancy of soccer as a sport has little to do with my opinion.
At this point, it’s an exercise in futility.
They canceled today’s game due to the ‘potential risk of infection’ to other athletes and staff of both teams which is why they should just cancel the whole thing.
Stupid, stupid, stupid.
