WASHINGTON, DC.- El técnico Ben Olsen y los jugadores del D.C. United dijeron estar muy decepcionados por la derrota que sufrieron en el RFK ante el San José Earthquakes con tres goles de Steven Lenhart.
“Es muy decepcionante la forma como manejamos esta partido hoy. Lucimos como un equipo de jóvenes inexpertos. Esto va seguir sucediendo, nosotros siempre lo hemos dicho. Los jóvenes cometen errores y yo puedo aceptar eso pero el compromiso y la aptitud que mostramos hoy, o que no mostramos de ninguna manera, es inaceptable”, dijo Olsen después del partido.
WASHINGTON, D.C.- Steven Lenhart anotó tres goles y agregó una asistencia para guiar al San José Earthquakes a un triunfo 4-2 sobre el D.C. United, en un partido jugado a un intenso ritmo y con diferentes alternativas en la capital estadounidense.
Head Coach Ben Olsen
Overall thoughts on the game
It was very disappointing; we looked like young kids. This is going to happen, we have always said that we are going to have games when young kids make mistakes – that I can live with. But the lack of commitment at times was unacceptable. I think we started reading our own press a little bit, everybody thought we were on a roll, so now we don’t have to do what got us a little success – and it’s a little success. We are in the middle of the table if you take this whole league.
A pair of teams riding month-long unbeaten runs meet at RFK Stadium when D.C. United return home to take on the San Jose Earthquakes. United are coming off a two-game unbeaten Western swing, concluding with a scoreless draw at the LA Galaxy. The Quakes are back on the road at an Eastern Conference opponent after a stirring 2-0 win against the Houston Dynamo at home last weekend.
