New York City FC Head Coach Ronny Deila:

On the emotional feeling when Thiago scored...

"It's unbelievable, the kind of pace he has. It was 70 yards I think, a sprint. Pines who I think was running with him - he's not slow, so I think he was impressed with the speed of Thiago as well. I thought he was going to shoot on the first, then when went inside I was like 'what are you doing? Put it in the goal!' But then he took it on his left and it rolled so slowly into the goal. This is a moment you're gonna remember, and all the hard work, all this suffering, struggling through our season was playing into that. So I feel brilliant for the team and everybody in the club. "

New York City FC Goalkeeper Sean Johnson:

On the last minute of the game...

"Yeah man, all the emotions. I collected the ball and as soon as I saw Thiago, that guy in space, you'll take your bets on him any day. I just tried to get him a ball he could run onto and then just lay it on the ground till the ball was in the back of the net. It's a special moment and definitely a night to remember."
