Here's some of what Sounders forward Fredy Montero had to say about his tying goal in Seattle's 2-2 result at New York.
On the match:I believe we rescued a point; we rescued a point on a very tough venue to play in, with weather that was really bad to play in. The game seemed to slow down due to the heat and humidity on the pitch.
On coming off the bench and scoring:I’m happy because I got a chance and I was able to put it away. In other occasions I’ve had chances but I haven’t been able to make the best of them. (Thankfully) today I was able to capitalize on the chance. Hopefully when we get back home the team can continue the same level that we’ve had, playing solid defense and making sure we score up top.
On not starting today’s match:I don’t question the decision; I’m not the type of player that asks those questions. I won’t second guess the coach’s decision. If I’m on the bench I try to help my team when I step onto the pitch and today I was able to go in and score… The players don’t dictate who starts, that’s up to the coaching staff and the Head Coach and he made the decision, I would’ve liked to start but that wasn’t the case, the case is that I came onto the pitch and scored.
