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.

On Firpo’s performance:

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.
