Eddie Johnson gives his thoughts on what happened after last week’s Open Cup game in San Francisco

johnson mug 2012.jpgA postgame scrum following Sounders FC’s win over San Jose in the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals last week stole a lot of the headlines, and limited access to the team afterward meant most of the feedback from the scene in San Francisco had come from Earthquakes players and Seattle coach Sigi Schmid.

After Monday’s practice I asked forward Eddie Johnson, who was involved in the activity, about what happened. Here was his response:

“You know, emotions — which is in sports. Both teams, we knew the importance of the game and it was just one of those things where maybe they didn’t advance and we advanced, and they probably took the celebrating the wrong way. And that’s going to happen, but I’m over it. Like I said, it was a good result for our team. Sometimes you don’t want to let things that happen after the game take away the importance of a good result for our team, but it’s all part of the sport, how emotions go. I know a lot of guys on that team and hopefully it won’t be an ongoing issue this year, but I have enough experience — I’ve been around — to know how to conduct myself if we were to face those guys again.”
