About the tournament

The team is very happy for being in this situation, but we can't just participate, we have to win this game. We have to be seriously about this international tournament.

For my players, this tournament is like their first girlfriend. The have to enjoy it but they also have to be convinced about what they have to do in the field. We are not leaving anything to chance.

About the Montreal Impact and how to beat them

They have (Montreal) a powerful attack, but not defensively, that's why we have to play away from our goal zone.
