Sounders FC 0, Toronto FC 2 — Toronto quotes via release

TORONTO FC HEAD COACH PREKI
“Absolutely happy with the effort, I thought the whole group worked real hard today. I thought first half we were pretty decent and at the moment I can see the best football we’ve had so far this year. I think that we want to do that every day in training and every game if we can. Obviously second half I wasn’t really happy the way we started the second half, we gave Seattle a chance and Stefan made two important saves for us to keep us in. Dwayne makes a good play on a goal and after we get a second on a good breakaway and at times in the second half we played some good football.”
On what his approach is for the upcoming Nutrilite game…
“It’s an important game, our approach is we’ve got to go and win the game. That’s our approach every game. Friendlies, league games, CONCACAF games, all games are the same when we step on the field. It’s all about commitment to be there for a result.”


TORONTO FC GOALKEEPER STEFAN FREI
On if the team is better organized at the back…
“Yeah, it’s getting a little bit better I couldn’t really help them much today with my voice but I feel we’re organized pretty well. The first half they picked the holes between our guys to make their runs in and I think the guys are communicating better. I think one thing that has changed that is great is that their air balls that they’re getting – everything that they throw at us I think we’re getting it and putting it away so it’s not laying in front of our goal and that helps a lot.”
TORONTO FC MIDFIELDER JULIAN DE GUZMAN
On if he was feeling more confident….
“I felt a lot more confident, I mean I think everyone felt a lot more confident. Coming off of a unfortunate result against Colorado – a part from a few little mistakes I think everyone was able to gel and we spent an entire week going over a couple of things going into Seattle and we were able to demonstrate that this was our best performance of the season.”
