THIERRY HENRY

"We played this New England team three times and they still beat us the same way. We put a game plan in place that was not applied. We lost another player. We manage what we have to manage with the means we have. We have one more game before going back home recharge our batteries."

SHAMIT SHOME

"We were disappointed not to come out aggressive and match their energy. We struggled in the past with the beginning of the games. We need to improve on this. I don't think we can make excuses. We prepared well. We were optimistic going into this game. But before talking about tactics we need to talk about desire and intensity. We all need to reflect on what we did wrong and how we could change our mentality, because it's not good enough. I'm happy James played his first game. He handled himself well and he can build on it."

AMAR SEJDIC

"When you are trailing coming in from halftime, you know something has to change. We needed to improve our desire to win the first and second balls. We played a bit better in the second half. The coaches prepared us for the game. We knew they were going to be aggressive, but we reacted instead of being proactive in the first half."
