Of course, we learned our lesson from last season, when we (gave up) the third goal and the fourth goal and we lost at home 4-0. And we had a couple of games when we really had to track the deficit in the game. I don't want to have this kind of situation where we have to trail the result every game. We have to do better.
He's working very hard to be one of the strikers in our rotation, ... As I've said to all of them 'You never know when your time will come, you have to be ready.' He did a great job Wednesday. This is what we're looking for from everybody -- being competitive, being hungry for success and when the time came, we'll come for you.
We know when we signed Facundo here he was going to be a great defender. We had to play him in the first couple of weeks at a different position, as a sweeper. We had to insist on him communicating. That's why he played a couple of games as a marker. Right now, he goes back to his natural position. I think he did very well today in communicating with the guys in the front and the back.
The toughest part is always to keep focus and concentrate, ... In a game like that, Chivas has nothing to lose. . . . As I told my guys, 'You have to be very careful going forward, but in this weather condition, if you have a chance, you have to put it in.' We did a pretty good job in the two minutes or five minutes we scored two goals, and actually the game was over.
We learned we are going to stick to our way of soccer, but of course we are not going to open up and you know, let the opposition score a goal in the first 50 minutes, ... This is two games and then the winner is going to go to the next round. So, as I said, we are going to play our way but I am going to keep in mind that one goal can change everything like we saw today.
The refereeing, right now, is getting out of hand. We have five games or four games and we have three red cards, it is unacceptable, ... The handball in the 89th minute was pretty obvious, everyone is fighting for their lives, fighting for the playoffs and we cannot lose games because someone had a different view of the game
We have to realize, whatever happens in Major League Soccer, it's going to be different when you play international, ... The mistakes we made against Colorado in a 2-0 league victory last weekend weren't punished, but we see a lot of times, even in the first game with Catolica, one mistake can cost us a goal. We cannot afford these same mistakes.
