"Definitely I feel we have the eyes of the international community on us. We are pioneers in a certain way, but at the end of the day more and the more the team reflects what Toronto's all about."

"When I see (Slovenians) on the street in Toronto, they're always excited and happy and that makes you feel good, that you can make somebody happy," Nesterovic said.
