In Quotes: NYCFC 2-0 Red Bulls

NYCFC made history on Saturday afternoon, winning at Red Bull Arena for the first time.

Here are all the key soundbites for the winning locker room…

Vieira on Satisfaction…

“Victory is not more sweeter than the last win in Seattle. I think it was a game that we were during the week we came over with a good game plan, and I'm really satisfied.

“I'm really satisfied because of course we managed to win the game, we took the three points and I think we played really well. We created a few chances, we scored, and it was a really good team performance.”

Villa on the Fans…

“I think we are very happy. We are very happy because a lot of time working for this, for give the three points and the Hudson River Derby to our supporters, that’s always coming here for the game, to support us.”

McNamara on Hard Work…

“Everybody worked as hard as they could for the team and when you do that, when you leave everything on the field, and especially when you come away with three points, it feels really, really good. You feel really proud of your teammates and your coaching staff.”

Sweat on his Goal…

“From an angle like that, I was just trying to put it back post. I put some spin on it and it went in the back of that net.”

Johnson on Pressure…

"The pressure on the ball from the front three really helped us out because they really weren't able to create much in and around our 18 (yard box).

“It was tough conditions being so hot, but we knew if we sat back they would create chances and Sacha would find pockets and get the ball to Bradley Wright-Phillips, but instead we limited him to no shots on goal and that's a testament to all 11 players."

Herrera on History…

“It was a great game for our defense and our team. From David Villa to our goalkeeper, we worked hard and we did what we had to do in defense. We were able to get the two goals and stay together and it was a historic day today.”

Ring on Sweat…

“It was about time someone scored from my assist this season. We had a couple of things work out and I’m happy for Ben. He’s been doing really well and he rewarded himself for his good performances in the past games.”

Jesse Marsch on Defeat…

“[NYCFC] physically put a lot more into the game, which meant that we weren’t able to overrun them like we often do. It’s a really bad feeling right now to have them celebrate on our home field.”

Tyler Adams on Midfield…

“Good players make it hard on you. Credit to Herrera. He did a good job, he got around the ball and won his individual battles.”
