NYCFC Head Coach Ronny Deila:

On result...

"We couldn't cope with their counter attacking. That was the big thing today. They were very clinical when they had opportunities. We are disappointed of course, but the boys worked hard and we just have to go home now to train and improve to make us ready for the league."

NYCFC Forward Gary Mackay-Steven:

On what went wrong vs Portland...

"It's hard to put a finger on it so soon after the game. We played a good first half, but it came down to them taking their opportunities in the final third...maybe that quality was lacking from us tonight. Fair play to Portland they were clinical and took their opportunites really well and probably deserved it in the end.
