Postgame quotes from San Jose Earthquakes

SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES HEAD COACH FRANK YALLOP
On winning this afternoon: “This is obviously a much needed three points for us, being in our situation in the table. It was a good performance, and it was what we talked about this week in training. It was a good follow-up to our second half against D.C. United last week. This all came today from our fight, our endeavor and being scrappy, which is something that has been missing this year. Hopefully, we can have that same standard for every game.”
On Cornell Glen’s good run of play: “Cornell (Glen), we had been trying to get him for a while, and over the last three or four years he has really matured. I’ll tell you what, he is dangerous. He had a couple of very good opportunities today, and put one away. He has the pace to get past defenders and it certainly showed today.”
SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES MIDFIELDER DARREN HUCKERBY
On the team performance: “It was a very good team performance. We got the goal early and we were creating chances and our shots on goal were on target. The guys in the back worked very hard and for the last few weeks we have been working very hard collectively, and I think we deserved it today.”
On moving forward: “It’s only one win, but it’s nice to beat a decent team, and we were the better team all the way through and deserved it. We created a lot chances and pushed on top of their defense most of the game. We look forward to another important game next week.”

On his goal: “With my goal, I was just trying to get a shot on target, and in the first half I was kind of rushing myself. So with the chance that I scored, I was just trying to pick a corner and I’m glad it went in.”
On the importance of the win: “We needed the win, and we did exactly that. (Chris) Wondolowski came on and had a big impact, Shea (Salinas) played very well today and everyone contributed to this important victory and we are looking forward to next week.”
SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES MIDFIELDER ANDRE LUIZ
On his debut: “I am happy because the team won. I think that we have a good group here and we are going to get better every game. For me personally, I am glad that I was able to make it through 90 minutes, especially after hurting my elbow early in the game. I feel comfortable with the group, but with another week of practice I will be able to integrate into the team even more.”
