No players listed


“Trying to just be solid defensively. Again, a big part of who we are, is being good in possession. And that’s how we defend. And, obviously, that can turn into certain moments, we are a bit more exposed, and we have just to manage the ball in a very good way, trying to control the tempo, control the game, and we will try to go that way. I always feel like the best way to defend is to attack and try to attack.” − Pineda

“I think their attack is very dynamic; they have a lot of good players. They’ve been playing together for a while now. So they have good cohesion within the group. But for us, we scout them, we look at how they play, but it’s really not about them. It’s about us. And, you know, us going there and getting three points and imposing our game plan and our style on them.” − Andrew Gutman
