SIGI SCHMIDOn his team's effort: I thought we did all right in terms of going a man down. We had a chance to equalize the game on the penalty kick, which was a good position to be in. We had a chance to go up 1-0 playing a man down at the end of the first half with the run by Steve Zakuani. So the red card definitely hurt us, but at the end of the day when you get penalties and you get chances like Steve's you've got to bury them.
On Leo Gonzalez's red card for a high-footed challenge: I think Leo went into the ball, thought he was going to get a piece of the ball, ended up missing the ball and ended up getting the player. So the referee decided it was a red card. It seemed basically at that point of the game maybe it was a little harsh. I haven't seen the replay. Certainly there was some repetitive fouling of Fredy Montero -- it was obvious that they were trying to shut him down in that regard. But overall, we probably can't argue with the card.
On the Saprissa goals: We didn't put pressure on the midfield. We dropped in front of the center backs on the first goal and then he was able to slip the ball in to an open man. On the second goal we got caught on a counter. We got caught ball-watching a little bit. At that point we were trying to play a 3-4-2 and trying to go for the equalizing goal because we knew we needed to get something out of here.
On Saprissa attacking more in the second half: It's a lot easier to play when you're up a man, for sure. Certainly they have different attacking players. They tried to come with a lot of their quick, fast players and they were able to hold the ball.
