THIERRY HENRY, Head coach - Montreal Impact
About the team's last preseason game
"We worked well physically tonight, but this is not quite how we wanted to finish camp. We were able to create chances, but we need to finish them. It's alarming when you're not able to create chances, but once again tonight, it was not the case and we can work on the finishing. Now, we need to think about Saprissa and with what I have seen, even though we have never played there, it will not be easy against a team showing quality and that plays well."
MATHIEU CHOINIÃRE, Midfielder - Montreal Impact
About the team's chances throughout the game
"The team played well and we created a lot of chances today. We're not panicking. We're working on it in training and we're progressing well. It will come."
AMAR SEJDIC, Midfielder - Montreal Impact
About the lack of opportunism
"I wouldn't say lack of opportunism. I think it's more a lack of finding the finishing move. I think we did a good job of being patient, moving them around, isolating the defenders and getting 3 v 2 or 4 v 3 situations. We created the chances, we're just missing the click and the instinct to make the final pass and finish."
