Eric Gehrig Plays Well Against Toronto FC
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Columbus Crew defender Eric Gehrig had the best game of his short pro career last week in helping the Crew blank Toronto FC.
“We’ve got to build on team defending just like last week,” Gehrig (above) told MLSsoccer.com. “We did a good job of limiting Toronto’s chances but New York is a whole different animal.”
Gehrig will be in the middle of the fray, literally. The defender was thrust into the starting central defense alongside Chad Marshall hours before the Toronto match when Danny O’Rourke was pulled because of a bad knee.
“Saturday was a big game personally,” he said. “It was a big jump as far as making a name for myself and proving I can contribute in this league.”
