New York City FC defeated D.C. United, 4-1, on Wednesday night in its return to the friendly confines of Yankee Stadium. After the match, head coach Ronny Deila and forward Ismael Tajouri, Shradi discussed the club's third straight victory:
NYCFC head coach Ronny Deila:
On first game in Yankee Stadium, but without fans ...
“We miss the fans of course. If we get them in here, it’ll be great. We have to make our own atmosphere and I think the boys did that really good in the second half today. It can be easy to drop a little bit down and get quiet, and we could have had problems today, but we pushed the tempo in the second half and that was good.”
NYCFC forward Ismael Tajouri-Shradi:
On D.C.'s game plan and breaking that down ...
"I think they didn't change anything from the last game. They played the same formation ... we know it was going to be difficult to get through, but we scored an early goal. It was very important. We conceded a goal, then we knew it was going to be tough to get through. We kept going ... the second half we played amazing ... to continue to play how we play. It was a good performance."
