WHAT THEY SAID

Head coach Anthony Hudson

"I thought it was a really good test. We managed now to push players to their first 90 minutes. It was good to see Kei back involved. He had a great presence for 45 minutes."

"Games like today are so important. It is a real test. I think what we are doing is in every game we are seeing progressions on how we want to play."

Midfielder Nicolás Mezquida

"I feel really good, we just have to work on the shape that coach wants. We already have the idea, so we just need to focus and to perfect on what the coach wants. I 100% believe we will do it and will be ready for the first game."

Midfielder Dillon Serna

"I think the past couple of games we’ve had a slow start. We’ve played well, created chances and played strong but it’s just that first 15-20 minutes we’ve got to come out guns blazing from the very beginning."
