Find out what coaches and players had to say about Week 3 of the Fall Season: 

Minnesota United coach Carl Craig on the difficulty of playing against Indy Eleven

"Let's be fair, there's a reason they're at the top of the league, because they're gritty, they made it difficult for us, they're physically massive, it's tough, they're a tough team to play against.”

Minnesota forward Christian Ramirez on scoring his penalty kick

"I listened to my little brother, he told me to hit it as hard as I could, so that is my strategy for that one. I knew before that he's going early, so I was just going to go down the middle hard and hope for the best."

Tampa Bay Rowdies coach Stuart Campbell on his team finishing chances

“Apart from last Saturday, game in and game out, we’ve made a lot of chances and haven’t capitalized. It was great to make those chances again, but to put three in the back of the net was pleasing.”

Tampa Bay midfielder Joe Cole on his bicycle-kick goal

“It was nice. It’s always nice to score the first goal in a game and it was a lovely goal. It’ll be a nice one to watch and send home for everyone to watch, but the main thing is that the team was excellent tonight.”

Rayo OKC coach Alen Marcina on the performance of his side in the big win over the New York Cosmos

“The Cosmos are the best team in the league, and we dominated tonight. If you look at the Cosmos opportunities, none of them really stressed Daniel Fernandes because our guys executed the game plan.

Rayo OKC midfielder Michel on the team’s game plan

“The commitment and organization among us was great, especially against the best team in the league. So far this was our best game all year because we stuck to the plan, and we saw that the result was a positive one.”

FC Edmonton coach Colin Miller on the supporters pushing FC Edmonton to strong home form

“The fans were incredible today. The amount of support they provide us is fantastic. We are very grateful for their support and the players appreciate everything they do for us. Six games unbeaten at home takes some doing in any level of soccer and with this sort of character on the team we have every chance to achieve our goals this season.”

Ottawa Fury FC coach Paul Dalglish on bouncing back from three straight losses

“This is a great group of players. It’s only a matter of time before we turn things around. There is still plenty of soccer to be played and once we score one or two, there will be many more after that I have no doubt.”

Miami FC coach Alessandro Nesta on building off of the team’s first win in the Fall Season

“I want to see that our players can sense an opportunity and do what they have to do to kill the opponent. I want them to know that they can win every match when they step on the pitch.”

Jacksonville Armada FC coach Tony Meola on the effort of his team despite a loss to Miami

“I could not be prouder of our effort tonight. It is always tough to play a man down, especially for as long as we did. If we can continue to show that kind of effort, good things will happen.”
