In Quotes: Columbus Crew 2-3 NYCFC

All of the key soundbites from the away locker room following NYCFC’s thrilling comeback in Ohio.

Vieira on Harrison…

“When you come to a place like this and play the way that we played, you need players to be at their best. When you look at Jack, he was fantastic – not just because of the goals he scored, but the way he worked for the team.”

Harrison on Performance…

“For me, it’s more about the team performance. I got two goals tonight, but I couldn’t have done it without the teammates around me. I think we played very well as a team, and that paid off for us tonight.”

Sweat on First Game…

“It was huge for me. It’s a little bittersweet to come back to an old club but I couldn’t be more proud to be part of the team and the performance and to be part of it.”

Vieira on Herrera vs Pirlo…

“It’s just looking for different characteristics of the players regarding today’s game. I know what I can get from Yangel, I know what I can get from Andrea regarding the game and this is the reason why I make the change. The next game we have to look at it again and make a decision. This time it’s Andrea, maybe the other game would be somebody else.”

Herrera on Debut…

“I feel super happy for the game we had and the three points we managed to get over here as visitors. We’re going home really happy and really calm. Thank God we had a great game. The team and I are going to continue the victory and we’re going to keep working to stay on top.”

Vieira on Competition for Places…

“Since the first day, I’ve believed that we have a better squad than last year. I see them working every day in training, and because of the quality of players we had last year and the new ones we’ve bought we are much better as a team and a squad. This is really good for me.”

Sweat on his Assist…

“It was a back and forth game, they kept the ball, then we kept the ball. I had the chance to serve the ball into the area with my weak foot which I don’t do too often and Yangel was there to finish.”
