Oscar Pareja say team 'lost two points' after tying short-handed Chivas

Coach pleased with second half, offensive effort; disappointed in not scoring more

Colorado Rapids head coach Oscar Pareja following the 1-1 road draw at Chivas USA: 

Thoughts on the game:

“Chivas didn’t have many options when they were one man down and we controlled them all the time. We were the team that was putting the soccer in the pitch and the team that was creating the options. If one of those ten options that we had very clear could be in the net, we were talking about not at a disadvantage because we were one man up. I have to say that I’m very pleased with what the boys did in the second half.”
 
On being too patient with substitutions:

“No, this team is thinking instead of running. I prefer to have players that are thinking instead of just having people that are just running.”
 
On Martin Rivero’s return and Vicente Sanchez debut:

“It was good to have Martin back, good to have Vicente involved in the game just after four [training] sessions in the week and then he came up and gelled with the group and gave us a fantastic contribution to our creativity and mobility; he’s a player that’s going to help us a lot. Martin came in and scored a goal; those are the positive things I keep and like I told the players, they lost two points tonight and won one.”
