The defeat was barely cashed on Thursday evening that the captain of the Montreal Impact Jukka Raitala had already the head in the next match against Toronto FC, which will be held on Wednesday, July 15, in Orlando.
“It’s going to be a tough game, but we will focus on this match and play better than we did today,” he said after the reverse from 1 to 0 the face of the Revolution in New-England. We want to get the three points. The attention is on us because we played badly.”
Used throughout the game, Raitala has itself undergone a meeting rather difficult against the Revolution and he doesn’t hide it.
“It’s hard to play after so many months without a match, but it was the same thing for all the players,” said the Finn, as quoted on the web site of the Impact. Now, we need to analyze this match and see where we can improve and play better against Toronto.”
Adjust the shooting
Having pointed out the lack of fighting spirit of his players, the head coach of the Impact Thierry Henry also prefers to look ahead.
“We didn’t know where we were going to be physically for this match, but this is not an excuse, summed up Henry. What I say to my team is to fight. And it’s not happening tonight (Thursday) and we have to rectify the shot against Toronto.”
Before they face the Impact next Wednesday, Toronto FC has first appointment Sunday morning in Orlando, with the D. C. United. Training toronto will, therefore, have two full days of rest before measuring the Impact, which could benefit the troupe to montreal.
