New York City FC put together a strong performance to beat FC Cincinnati, 2-1, for yet another win. Following the match, members of NYCFC spoke to the media:
NYCFC head coach Ronny Deila:
On NYCFC’s second half ...
“For almost 70 minutes we were completely dominant all over the pitch. When they got it to 2-1, we got a little shaky and they got belief. When you’re two-nil up you try and keep the result and high press, and we did most of the time. First 70 minutes, you can’t do any better than that. That’s really good. The intensity, the pressure, how we break lines, the great chances, we scored two goals. They had nothing, Last 20, we were suffering after we gave them a goal. We needed to have three behind in the end to get to calm down. But we did get good control and the boys controlled the game out. We won -- fully deserved.”
NYCFC defender Anton Tinnerholm:
On taking chances from distance and scoring ...
“It’s this time of the year. You know it’s going to happen. But yeah, it was a good one. I felt like all the players were grouping to the ball and I got a little space. I have confidence in what I do right now and got a quick thought ‘why not? Let’s try’ and it was in the back of the net. Pretty good feeling.”
