Boca Juniors were at Qwest Field this morning.
Here are a few of their reactions before their friendly against Sounders FC at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.
COACH ROBERT POMPEI"The stadium is incredible. It’s marvelous. My son, he wanted me to take a whole bunch of pictures so I could show him. It’s an incredible stadium. We’re so excited to be here."
Never miss a local story.
"Our goal here is to show good image of the Boca Juniors here in the United States and for the world. We have a lot of players that are training for the World Cup right now, so we have a lot of young players that are playing here."
"We don’t think (playing on FieldTurf is) going to change that much. We got very late notice that it is going to be synthetic turf. But at our training facilities at Boca we do have a synthetic field that we use mostly for when it’s raining. It was a little bit of a surprise that we are going to be playing on it, but we don’t expect it to change things too much."
MIDFIELDER MATIAS GIMENEZ"We don’t foresee (FieldTurf) being that big of a problem. We have an artificial turf in our training facilities. Yes, we didn’t find out until the last minute, but we think it will be fine."
