POSTGAME REACTION: Tyler Adams | 03/01/18

New York Red Bulls midfielder Tyler Adams

On the match:

Well we saw Olimpia step out a little bit higher today. Obviously they have to try to get a goal and we know that if we keep a clean sheet then we’re through to the next round. We emphasized building out of the back after a while, kicking the ball long so getting out wide and having Marc [Rzatkowski] sit in the middle a little bit more, me on the perimeter and yeah just trying to facilitate and find good spots. Sean Davis was getting in a lot of good spots today, being able to turn, unlucky on a couple passes to Brad [Wright-Phillips], but in the end we created a lot of chances, just weren’t able to score all of them, but we scored the ones that we needed to and we’re excited to be going to the next round now.

On his assist to Sean Davis:

I hear Sean, I know that when he’s at the top of the box there, we know he can create and score those kinds of goals, we’ve seen it day in and day out in practice and he’s scored a lot in MLS play. So I know that that cutback – that second line was always on after Olimpia’s trying to drop a deep line and stop that initial cross.
