D.C. UNITED HEAD COACH TOM SOEHN:
On shaking up the line-up and how it worked tonight:
“I still think we showed signs of having a lot of games especially in the first half we weren’t really knocking the ball around the way we wanted to, we played a little too direct and it called for Hyndman to come into try to settle the game down and now add some soccer to it and I thought there was a lot space to expose them and we didn’t do a good enough job early. I think everyone is pretty disappointed we didn’t walk away with three”
