FC DALLAS HEAD COACH ÓSCAR PAREJA
On strategy playing down a man:
Just to be organized in two lines of four. We wanted to control the width of the field to see what is coming, especially on our left and their right. And also try to extend the line and support because we knew that they were going to get some numbers up.
FC DALLAS GOALKEEPER CHRIS SEITZ
On entering second half:
You know, we sought confidence. It is one of those things where we had a good group of guys out there, a group that we knew was going to have to work hard, but at the same time we thought we would be able to create a chance or two. We are going to obviously put defense first and then try and get one or two chances to win the game and that was our mindset going into it. Obviously, things changed decently quick and we had to adjust from there. But, we went back out there and honestly we weren't playing for the 1-1 tie, we still had confidence in what we could do out there.
