U-17 MNT vs. Canada Post-Match Quote Sheet

Head coach John Hackworth
On the match:
“We came out and executed our game plan very well in the early going, but you’ve got to finish a couple of those other opportunities we had. If we would have gotten the third goal, I think we would have made it easy on ourselves and now it’s done. Canada played well and give them credit for never giving up. Overall, I’m extremely pleased with six points from our first two games. We’re in a great spot, so now we have to battle through our tired legs and get ready for Jamaica.”

On Canada:
“They came out in the second half and displayed the type of soccer their capable of playing. Their number nine (Jarek Whiteman) is an excellent player, probably one of the best target forwards here. Number four (Oliver Lacoste-Lebuis) can stroke it around and their two center backs are quality. They are a good side and they showed that in the second half and against Jamaica. Full credit to them, as they made it very difficult to get out of there with three points.”

On having six points:
“We’re right where we want to be. Our plan was to come and earn three points in each of the first two matches. We wouldn’t have liked to give up the goal tonight, but now for us the biggest thing is battling through the fatigue with four games in seven days. We’ll see how it goes, we’re in the position we want to be in.”

On facing Jamaica next:
“We feel Jamaica is going to be an extremely difficult match for us, especially when it’s in Jamaica.”

Defender and Captain Mykell Bates
On the mood of the team after earning six points:
“We’re very happy. It was a tough win, but we got three points and that’s all that matters. By winning those two games we’re dictating what we’re going to do for the rest of the tournament. And that’s a very good feeling for us.”

On his goal:
“I checked to and next thing you know I saw the ball. I anticipated the ball was going to come through and took my time, took a touch and knew where I wanted to go.”

On the second half letdown:
“We were losing focus as the match went on and I think fatigure played a part in it. We just need to stay more focused to sustain the 90 minutes.”

Forward Billy Schuler
On his goal:
“I was at the line of defense and made a diagonal run. (Sheanon Williams) slipped me through and the goalie came out to defend the near post. I just tried to get there, slide and hit it far post. I got it by the goalie and I got it in.”

On how they played in the first half:
“We’ve been trying to play soccer and not just play balls over the top, trying to not play sloppy. I think it’s worked. Although sometimes we straw from not playing soccer, we lose focus at times, but we always seem to get back to it sometime in the game, which is great. That’s when we play our best.”

Sierra Mist Man of the Match Daniel Wenzel
On controlling the midfield and dominating the first half:
“We’ve just been practicing just playing simple and we just put it all together. I think by us keeping the ball, Canada just seemed to get tired. We just need to do that for the full game.”

On facing Jamaica:
“Jamaica is our biggest game because if we get a result we’ll qualify. All of our focus is on that game, getting a win and moving on from here.”
