TNS The Seattle Sounders Clint Dempsey tells the referee that he's missed a couple of foul calls against Toronto FC

The 2017 MLS Cup is nearly here.

Victor Vazquez eventually tapped in a second when Altidore's effort rebounded off the upright to get the celebrations started at the 90 minute.

The defeat denied the Sounders their second-consecutive championship, a year after they bagged their first against the same TFC squad at BMO in 2016.

In fact, it wasn't until the 30th minute that Joevin Jones gave Seattle a shot on goal - marking the first for the Sounders in 150 minutes of MLS Cup play against Toronto, having failed to put an effort on target during last year's penalties win after a 0-0 draw.

Frei is already a club legend for his spectacular game-saving denial of Altidore a year ago and he provided another demonstration that he is indeed one of the league's very best goalkeepers on Saturday.

Altidore ran onto a through ball from Sebastian Giovinco, outpaced the Seattle defense and coolly slotted a shot past Stefan Frei, who until that moment had appeared invincible.

Swiss keeper Frei, a former Toronto player, saved Michael Bradley's powerful 25-yard strike, an Altidore header and a Giovinco shot - before he was finally beaten.

Victory for Toronto adds the MLS Cup to the Supporters' Shield and Canadian Championship - making them the first side to win a clean sweep of domestic titles in MLS history.

But Toronto ended the half well on top again, Frei denying Marco Delgado and Vazquez from distance before Jones nearly turned into his own net while appealing for offside against Justin Morrow as Toronto's struggle to puncture Seattle's rigid defence began to frustrate.
