VANvSKC Quotes: "An excellent performance from front to back and start to finish"

Sporting Kansas City Manager Peter Vermes

On tonight’s match...

I always think it’s really difficult when you have to go away from home and sort of control the game. The fact that they bunkered in at home doesn’t make for an easy game, because it’s very easy to get a little overzealous and open yourself up for a counter. I thought there were two things. I thought, one, we were really good in possession. We didn’t lose the ball in critical areas of the field that found us unbalanced and at the same time, when we did go forward, we were really conscientious of defending from behind.
