“Galaxy played better in some parts of the game. When you play against a quality team you get to a point during the game where you have to suffer, and of course when you concede the goal it becomes more difficult because of the quality of players that they have on the team. But, I’m really happy, really pleased to win that game because it was against a tough opponent.”
