The rookie season of Toronto FC rookie midfielder Ifunanyachi Achara, who made a huge splash in TFC’s season opener on March 7, has been washed away.
The club announced on Thursday that the young Nigerian tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee.
He will undergo surgery on July 7 and as a result will miss the remainder of the 2020 season.
Achara made his MLS debut and scored the game winning goal earlier this year in TFC’s home opener against New York City FC on March 7.
He was selected 25th overall in the 2020 MLS SuperDraft and signed with TFC on Feb. 21.
