NYCFC Head Coach Ronny Deila:

On the first 10 minutes in second...

"It's impossible for me to say right now. We have to look at it one more time. They played good. They are a good team. We had a fantastic first half. I will focus on that. I think we also came back into the game the last 20 minutes. Had some good subs come on and get into the game again. That was really, really good. They scored on their two chances and the stadium goes with them, they get more energy, belief. It was a tough second half, but there is so much positive with this game in the first half--the pressing, the play, the goals...looked like a top team. It's about doing that for 90 minutes.

NYCFC Goalkeeper Sean Johnson:

On the first 10 minutes of the second half...

"They came out on the front foot. They made some changes, put a few guys higher up the pitch. We could have been better on the ball. They had a good spell of possession there, and some good moments when they got behind our back line. Turning us over in good spaces. Hats off to them for how they came out in the second half. It's up to us to recognize that and make the adjustments and weather some tough periods of the game. There are going to be moments when the other team has the upper hand, but unfortunately that span we conceded two goals in the time period. It's a learning experience for us moving forward.
