CARSON, Calif. – Bruce Arena’s post game game thoughts from Sunday’s 1-0 San Jose Earthquakes victory over the LA Galaxy…
(On the foul on Simon Dawkins…)
ARENA: "No foul. If that's a foul in this game, then there's a hundred fouls.”
(On his thoughts on the game…)
ARENA: "I thought our team played well tonight. Obviously, we didn't finish off plays technically in and around the penalty area. It cost us the game. We were in position to get a goal or two tonight, for sure. Failed to execute the last pass or shot."
(On the Quakes setting a pace early that LA didn’t like…)
ARENA: "Strongly disagree with that statement. A little bit of a fresher team came at us hard. You saw what they looked like in the second half. They were the ones falling on the ground, taking players out with cramps and all. Maybe the pace wasn't to their liking."
(On any changes going forward…)
ARENA:"We obviously have to see how players come through this game. Obviously it's been a demanding week and make adjustments accordingly. That'll be right up until game time on Wednesday."
