Postgame comments from head coach Hernán Losada, Samuel Piette and Joel Waterman will be available here.


"We had chances tonight, but the worst thing is that we lost the game after 10 minutes. It is hard to understand because on the first goal, it was an opportunity for us and in the end, Chicago scores. These are mistakes that are hard to accept at this level. There is another important game on Saturday at home before the Leagues Cup, so we want to learn from it tonight and get ready for another crucial match. We are losing together as a team. You win or you lose as a group."


"I felt good. I'm happy to be back on the pitch with the team. I would have liked to get some points tonight, but we have to bounce back on Saturday. There is frustration when you don't score and you don't win. I think we don't always make the right choices at the right moments. There is another massive game coming on Saturday so we have to work on it and learn from today's game."


"It is frustrating because they capitalized on three of their five shots and we did not score on 17 shots. They took care of their chances. We have to find ways to score. Both teams had to deal with the delay and the adversity so it is not an excuse. We can't lose 3-0."
