Montreal Impact assistant coach Philippe Eullaffroy
We will be looking to go with a different starting 11 for this game.Certain players will be given more playing time and we will look to try out different combinations. However, this game is still as important to us as it is for Tampa Bay. We want to win this tournament, so this game is crucial.
Tampa Bay Rowdies Head Coach Ricky Hill
The players are eager to get a good result on Wednesday, coming off the loss against D.C. United. We all know this is preseason and that we have recently started practicing, but we want to represent the organization and the league in the best way possible. Montreal is an experienced side with many skilled players, meaning Wednesday will be a hard-fought battle on the pitch. We are hoping these games help our squad regain their fitness and momentum, as well as add to their experience as professional players.
