-Jojea Kwizera got his first career start in MLS.
“We were losing 2-0 at half-time, but tonight’s result is a little severe. The third goal was difficult to take. We created dangerous opportunities, but we weren’t able to score. If you look at the content of the game, we don’t deserve to concede four goals, but we still did. We need to be better in that aspect. But the result is not reflective of how we played tonight.”
“We went into this road trip knowing we were taking on two of the top teams in the league. Beating Seattle was great, but it was only half the battle. We came in here knowing this was a different battle. Unfortunately, they got the better of us. We have to regroup now and get ready to take on a Sporting Kansas City team that’s desperate for points.”
“I don’t think 4-0 was the right result. Of course, you can’t say anything with that result, but we had our chances, and it could’ve been a different game. We all gave what we had. They just scored on their chances, and we didn’t.”
