Sounders FC 1, Isidro Metapan 1 — Seattle player quotes

These provided by team release…

* * *

Kasey Keller – Sounders FC Goalkeeper

(On the win…) “One of the most important things about it, irrespective of going and making sure we have six more games in this competition, is that we never should have lost to that team over two legs. I think what that shows is that we are finding ways to get results now, where maybe 10-12 games ago we were finding ways to lose games or draw games. Now we are finding ways to get the results we need. A great team spirit. We make a mistake, we give up a goal and we don’t panic. We have decent chances and then Alvaro is able to come off the bench and score a great goal for us. Then we were pretty comfortable after that, I think. I’m very happy with the way team responded. Obviously we are disappointed with the way we played in the first half, but let’s be honest, not the best conditions to play a game under. We have got a young team and these experiences we need to learn from. Hopefully we learned a bit today because if we played like that in Monterrey or in somewhere we could take a big number. So what we need to do is learn from that and figure out that we can be better.”

(On the goal allowed…) “I think we fell asleep a little bit. We let them play the ball quickly and then the ball got chipped in, we got pulled out of the middle. The one guy who basically is going to head the ball in for them we didn’t mark. We are disappointed. We will have to obviously look at it on tape and dissect it and try to learn from it and make sure that it doesn’t happen again. But those kinds of things do happen and I’m just proud of the response and the panic stations didn’t happen. Everybody settled down there after about 20 minutes and we started to play decent. And then the introduction of Nate and Alvaro made a big difference and we got the goal. And I didn’t have a lot to do in the end and I was happy about that.”

(On playing with Alvaro Fernandez…) “I enjoy playing with him. It gives me more opportunities to score and he is the perfect guy to have on the team.”
