Philadelphia Union 1-0 Toronto FC: Ten-man Union win late

Philadelphia and Toronto appeared headed for a draw until Kleberson pulled off a bit of magic to take the win.

CHESTER, Pa. -- The Philadelphia Union were about to squander another chance to move back into the playoff positions with a scoreless draw against visiting Toronto FC until Kleberson scored a stoppage-time free kick to take all three points in a 1-0 win.

The Union had a number of chances in either half, with Jack McInerney and later Antoine Hoppenot coming within inches of finding the net.

Philadelphia went down a man when a red card was shown to Union wide man Fabinho in the 77th minute for a stomp into the back of Toronto's Alvaro Rey.

Despite the disadvantage, the Union came up with a huge win. Kleberson scored a vital goal deep into stoppage time, blasting a free kick past a stationary Joe Bendik.

Philadelphia (12-10-9) moves into the fifth and final playoff spot with the victory. TFC (5-16-11) remains eighth in the East.
