D.C. UNITED HEAD COACH TOM SOEHN
On getting a win
It’s kind of funny that on the day when I thought “we’ve had better moments soccer-wise” you come out and take a game in which you shore up so there’s a real positive in that because we’ve been looking to do that but it wasn’t our best soccer day. We didn’t create our normal chances but at least we were opportunistic when we did.
