Mauro Rosales not only assisted the Sounders’ lone and winning goal today, but after the game he delivered these three fan-endearing quotes in a postgame interview with KONG 6/16:
On the win: We plan everything during the week, but you don’t plan to lose a man five minutes into the game. It was really, really hard to play against this team. They had the chances, they wanted to take the three points – they need the points. We did something special today because playing with 10 men, the character that we showed today is amazing. I’m proud of my boys, so proud of the guys: We played with the heart today.
On Eddie Johnson’s game-winner: I’m really happy about that. Eddie deserved that. He’s played very very well the last couple of games, he’s getting time with the national team. … He’s doing aways the best for the team. Now he’s going back to the national team. We’re going to miss him and the other guys, but this is a team group and everybody has to step up and play for this shirt that we love.
