QUOTES FROM FC DALLAS AFTER THE MATCH
Interim Head Coach Peter Luccin
My thoughts on today’s performance…
“This game hurts because I felt we had a lot of chances to score, even in the final moments. Speaking about the players’ attitude, I have nothing but great things to say. Ultimately, the game is about scoring goals. We concede a lot of goals and we always have to score three or four to win the game. We’ll go home, rest and focus on the next challenge.”

Midfielder Tsiki Ntsabeleng
About the result…
“We were a bit unlucky. We showed good character to come back, but as I said, we needed a bit of luck to get the ball over the line and score the second and third goals.”

Striker Eugene Ansah
On tonight’s results…
“It was a better response than the last game we played here. It’s frustrating that we didn’t get a result. Personally, I think the team responded well. We have to focus on the details and we just have to be strong. We have to do better in the next game.”
