SIGI SCHMID, head coach

(On thoughts on the match) “Disappointed. Obviously we are disappointed that we were up two-nothing and when you are up two-nothing you should never give the game away, so we are disappointed. [. . .] I was disappointed with how we performed in the last thirty minutes of the game.”

(On playing in CONCACAF Champions League) “We played a lot of our young players today. We wanted to give them a look. I think we have been a little bit unlucky in CONCACAF. We should have probably won at Marathon. Without the red card at Saprissa we would have done much better. We had a bad ten minutes today. But certainly we are still a young team in the second year of existence as a franchise. We learn every time we play together. We want to be back next year in CONCACAF and we will do much better.”

MIKE FUCITO, forward

(On the first Seattle goal) “Nate [Jaqua] and I talked before the game. [. . .] When I drop, I’ll try to make a run off him and wait for it. [. . .] I was able to pull it back, turn and get the shot off. I got a little bit lucky with the deflection, but I’ll take it.”

(On his goal) “It was a good combination. I think Alvaro [Fernandez] played in to Nate [Jaqua] and Nate played a great ball through. I was able to beat the goalie there.”

(On thoughts on the match) “Every time you come down here it is difficult to play. I think it’s definitely a good learning experience. I thought we did a lot well, so it’s a little bit frustrating. I think it was just a couple-minute lapse that was the difference. We will take the positive things from this. I think there’s some stuff that tactically we need to work on and make sure that we are concentrating for 90 minutes.”
