Erick Torres | Postgame vs. Columbus Crew SC

(sobre el volver a marcar) “Si, contento. Agradecido, primero con Dios por darme la oportunidad de salir bien, darme la oportunidad de jugar un partido mas. Despues agradecido con el entrenador Wilmer (Cabrera), el cuerpo tecnico, con mis companeros. Muy contento y feliz porque se logra una victoria. Es la segunda al hilo, que, sin duda, nos llena de confianza”.

(sobre el gol que anoto) “Sin duda, lo comentaba en el partido, en pleno partido, en el festejo yo le dije a Alex, ‘gracias por la pelota.’ El tener a un jugador, jugadores que te pongan ese tipo de pases, que se atrevan a ponerte pases, sobretodo de larga distancia y tan preciso adelante, me ayudo bastante para yo poder ir al frente. Fue un pase, no se, 50, 60 metros hacia delante, muy preciso. Te digo el pase me ayuda bastante para ir al frente, para encarar al defensa central y animarme a hacer lo que un delantero hace, trate de buscar el arco. Te digo, es la confianza. Me siento muy bien, me siento muy contento, muy bien fisicamente, mentalmente, sobretodo. Se combino todo para que pudiera marcar”.

(on scoring again) “Yeah, happy. Thankful, first with God for giving me the opportunity of doing well, giving me the opportunity to play one more game. Then, happy with the head coach Wilmer (Cabrera), the coaching staff, my teammates. Very satisfied and happy because we got one more win. It’s the second one in a row, there is no doubt that makes feel confident.”

(on the assist from MF Alex for his goal) “No doubt, I even mentioned to Alex it during the game, while I celebrated, ‘Thanks for the ball.’ To have a player, players that can give those kinds of passes, that dare to do those passes, especially such a long distance and make it so precise, it helped so much to be able to go up front. It was a 50- or 60- meter pass forward, very precise. As I said, the pass helped me to go forward, to face the central defender and do what a forward has to do, which is to look for the goal. As I said, it’s all in the trust. I feel well, I feel happy, very well physically and mentality, especially. Everything combined so that I could score.”
