Toronto FC has just ended their stay at Bradenton, Fla., and has headed over to Orlando for the second portion of their preseason.

One of the major additions to the 2010 preseason is the Walt Disney World Pro Soccer Classic. The tournament involves four major MLS sides including Toronto FC, Houston Dynamo, FC Dallas, and New York Red Bulls taking place  at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida.

In a the semifinals of the tournament, the New York Red Bulls will talk on Houston Dynamo on February 25 at 6:00 p.m. ET and Toronto FC will take on FC Dallas at 8:30 p.m.  The losers of these matches will face off two days later on February 27 at 6:00 p.m. while the winners will face off at 8:30 p.m.

Notes:

– Toronto FC (1-0-2)  has had a dull and dry preseason this far managing to score two goals in three games but only conceding one goal. TFC has made a few changes this off season with the signings of Jacob Peterson and Ty Harden;  in addition to the draft picks and the trailists at hand.

– Houston Dynamo’s (3-0-0) scoring has not lacked this preseason and will be tested against MLS opposition. They made a few changes with the signing of former TFC player Kevin Harmse and a few trialists on board.

– FC Dallas (3-0-0) also did not fail to score this preseason with 4-0, and 7-1 wins and will be tested against MLS opposition in this  tournament. FC Dallas has a few trialists and many of their draft picks on board and will be looking forward to this tournament.

– The New York Red Bulls (3-0-1) have had a decent preseason under their new coach and it will be interesting to see how they will do against MLS opposition.  They have made a few new signings to add depth to the team.

These preseason record may not be accurate due to the minimum coverage available.
