The Toronto FC squad, a Canadian franchise that competes in Major League Soccer (MLS) in the United States, was carrying out training this Monday in the run-up to the first leg of the Concachampions quarterfinals against Cruz Azul , when a crocodile appeared, an unusual event that left the coaching staff and the players atonic.
When they saw the huge animal, the surprise and shock of those who were in the field was total. They immediately had to stop activities for a few seconds for the club workers to try to scare the animal away, which they succeeded after a few minutes. Then, from the institution's social networks, they shared "the unexpected visit they had".

After practice, the team's coach, Chris Armas, spoke at a press conference about the unusual moment they lived and confessed: "There was a huge crocodile and I expected the players to run away because I did, but they went to him to See it. It speaks of ferocity and bravery".
