    Post Match Quotes

    Martin Rennie:

    “For the most part, I think once he got squared up against Soumare he was supremely confident that he was going to score. As soon as he gets squared up in the box he’s really deadly and he gets past people and he set that goal up really well. I thought he’d missed out on the second one but he did well on that; it was a great ball from Kekuta. Camilo’s on a fantastic run, he’s the top scorer in MLS at the moment I believe and it makes a big difference to any team when your strikers are scoring and also when you’ve got players like Mattocks and Kekuta to come off the bench, that’s a luxury that not many teams have and it’s exciting for us to be able to bring those guys on.”

    Camilo Sanvezzo:

    “We work hard for the opportunity for every time we score. Today I had a lot of chances. I’m happy that some went in.”

    Kekuta Manneh:

    “I don’t know how I got the goal. But when I had the ball I tried to take on the guy and try to force him down the field and try to get the ball back and try it all again. That’s what the coach was telling us, if we get the chance to shoot, give it some power.”
