Former Man United star Javier Hernandez produced the worst dive in football history
Former Bayern Munich and Juventus star Douglas Costa struck for the visitors before Jesus Jimenez equalised in the 62nd minute.
Another ex Bianconeri winger was on the scoresheet when Federico Bernardeschi put Toronto in the lead but 23-year-old Riqui Puig, a surprise signing from Barcelona, snatched a point by opening his MLS account with a stunning strike in the 89th minute.
But by far the most notable moment of the game was Hernandez' horrendous bit of play-acting. Hernandez, with the captain's armband on, appeared to have a little fracas with United states international Michael Bradley, a man who he has clashed with before.
Richie Laryea and Chris Mavinga came over and lightly put their hands on the Mexican international, with Bradley a little more forceful.

Hernandez started screaming as though he'd been attacked and then flung himself to the floor with quite incredible exaggeration.
It's so bad that you can't help but laugh at the theatrics from the ex Real Madrid and West Ham striker, who has quite rightly been given the meme treatment.
Hernandez recently hit headlines for giving a fascinating breakdown for why his old club need to move on from Sir Alex Ferguson, while he also claimed he'd go back to Old Trafford and play for free.
"If United came for me then I’d say 'yes, I’ll play for free.' Of course, you know, I’d do that," he said via The Mirror.
"But I also want to be very respectful to my club. I am playing very consistently and in my mind my conviction is all about winning a championship with LA Galaxy.
"In the future, if things happen then they happen - but in my mind I am 100 percent with LA."
In five years at United, Hernandez scored 59 goals in 150 appearances after joining from Chivas Guadalajara.
