Match Highlights Men of the Match
Rank Player What We Saw
1 Federico Higuain Two more goals gave a tantalizing look ahead at 2013. Imagine what this guy can do over an entire season.
2 Jairo Arrieta Another solid shift holding and setting up the Crew's final third. Should have at least one goal too.
3 Freddy Hall One of the bright spots on the night for TFC, with a tremendos save to rob Higuaín of a hat trick.
