But this meeting was special. First, the Impact took the lead in the 5th minute on a goal from Romell Quioto, but he suffered a bloody stroke and was sent off 10 minutes later.
“Things were going well even at 10, reminded Thierry Henry by videoconference on Saturday noon. We mastered the game until half-time and after that it was much more difficult for us. “
Samuel Piette maintains that it is the state of mind that made the strength of the team in this meeting with the score which does not indicate the real pace of the course. “In that game, we had a lot of intensity in what we were doing and we found it a bit against Chicago and Columbus. We were very supportive of each other to try to keep the score equal as long as possible. “
