NEW YORK RED BULLS HEAD COACH JUAN CARLOS OSORIO
On the team's overall performance:
"Very disappointed. Very poor first half. In the second half, we made
some adjustments. We dominated the second half except for the last two
minutes and paid a high price for not defending properly."

D.C. UNITED HEAD COACH TOM SOEHN
On playing the younger players
For me, it wasn’t really a chance to look at [the younger players] because we see them every day. I’ve said from the beginning that we have a deep team and it was fun to get them on the field and let them show what they’re about and their character, their quality, and why we brought some of them here.
