Reaccion de Vicente Sánchez | Dynamo vs. Sporting Kansas City

(sobre cuál es la clave para vencer a Portland Timbers) “Trabajar duro. Creo que Sporting Kansas City fue un rival muy duro, hizo las cosas muy bien durante la temporada, al igual que Portland. Ya no hay rival, todos los partidos son finales y hay que jugarlas así. En el fútbol hay que jugar todos los partidos y los playoffs es otro torneo, ya no es temporada regular. Va a ser duro, hay que prepararnos mentalmente y el lunes con todo”.

(sobre qué le dijo Wilmer Cabrera antes de entrar al partido) “Lo que me pidió Wilmer (Cabrera) era que no entraran ellos jugando por en medio, que intentará agarrar la pelota y hacer jugar a los delanteros por afuera. Contento que se dio, era un partido muy cerrado hasta que cayó el gol. Teníamos mucha atención a la pelota parada, los cuales son muy importantes”.

Translated from Spanish

(on what’s the key to defeat the Portland Timbers) “The key is to work hard. I think Sporting Kansas City was a tough opponent, they did well during the regular season, just like Portland has. There are no weak opponents anymore; all games are to be played like a final. In soccer, you have to play all the games and during playoffs a whole new season starts. It’s not like regular season anymore. It’s going to be tough, we have to prepare mentally and give our all on Monday.”

(on what head coach Wilmer Cabrera said to him before entering the game) “What Wilmer Cabrera asked me to do was to keep them from coming in through the middle, that I tried to steal the ball and make the strikers play on the wings. I am happy because I did that. This was a close game until we scored. We had to focus on the set pieces, because the set pieces are very important.”
