D.C. United head coach Tom Soehn
Thoughts on the game:

I want to credit Firpo. I thought they were a very good team. I watched a lot of their games in the past and tonight they played quality ball. It’s disappointing for them. Anytime it goes to penalties, it’s a difficult situation for either one that loses. It’s almost not fair.

D.C. UNITED HEAD COACH TOM SOEHN
On the game

“We had a pretty good stretch in the first half. We applied pressure, and then in a three-minute stretch, we got away from doing things as far as closing service. When Brian Ching came through, we didn’t step up. That three-minute span cost us a lot. Then you have to fight back and come back from three goals. It’s not easy to do.

On tonight’s performance

“Coming into tonight’s game we came in with the mentality of getting over that hump of finishing opportunities that we have available to us. We exposed plenty of the gaps given to us and we should have put them away, instead we gave up a 2-0 lead and let them back into the game.”
