Just ten days after coming to Toronto FC on a loan deal from Argentina, Lucas Janson scored on his debut — only to be matched by a player in his 317th MLS match, Chris Wondolowski, as the San Jose Earthquakes scrapped back for a 1-1 draw on Saturday night at Avaya Stadium.
Toronto, coming off Wednesday's Canadian Championship win, and with Jozy Altidore and Chris Mavinga unavailable due to suspension, rolled out an unconventional lineup that only managed a single off-target shot in the scoreless first half, compared to the Quakes' nine.
But a 58th minute double sub that brought Sebastian Giovinco and Gregory van der Wiel into the match paid almost immediate dividends, as they both assisted Janson on his first MLS goal within a minute of entering the action. San Jose made its own supersub by bringing Wondolowski on in the 64th, and he was able to bring the score level less than 15 minutes after taking the field hammering home the rebound on his deflected shot. That goal ended up securing the draw and bringing him close to a remarkable record.
