For the first time in the club's young history, Gambian International Amadou Sanyang and Toronto FC will participate in the group stages of the CONCACAF Champions League, thanks to a 2-2 draw away to CD Motagua that knocked the venerable Honduran side out of the competition Tuesday night.

Yeoman work from Stefan Frei, creative flair from Maicon, and second-half goals from Dwayne De Rosario and Chad Barrett saw Toronto come from behind twice to get a rare away result, and held on for the aggregate win, according to goal .com.

Toronto FC now advances to what should be a competitive and extremely difficult Group A, featuring perennial Mexican powerhouse and five-time CONCACAF Champions League winners, Cruz Azul, the 2010 Panamanian Clausura champs, Arabe Unido, and a familiar foe in current Major League Soccer holders, Real Salt Lake.

Things get underway in two weeks time, at home to Cruz Azul.

After the long journey back to Toronto, the MLS side will host Chivas USA on Saturday afternoon in the local league contest.
