D.C. United Head Coach Ben Olsen:

Overall thoughts:
Down 2-0, we were travel-weary early in the game, just a little bit out of sync in the first half, and I thought our subs came in and really changed the game. Their energy was good, and the entire team just raised it a level in the second half. It’s not always perfect, you don’t always play at your best, and you find ways to keep inching along. We did that tonight.
