"Of course when you're missing David, you're missing Anton, it's not easy. But I think we showed we have a good squad of good players," NYCFC coach Patrick Vieira said following the victory over Orlando. "I'm really glad because it shows that we are working well, and that everybody is aware about what we need to do when we are on the field."
"Of course, I am upset that we are not going to the Eastern Conference finals. I think there was a space there to score the third goal. I'm upset, frustrated, disappointed," NYCFC coach Patrick Vieira said. "We give ourselves the best chance to make it happen, and we knew how difficult and big the challenge was. Today, we played really well, we created chances. We had situations where we didn't make the best decisions, but we scored these two goals and I thought the third one would come."
