Final Whistle Reaction
Whewwww that was closer than I’d have liked, but huge credit to the team and head coach Gonzalo Pineda for pressing all the right buttons in the second half to crawl back from a first half deficit. So many good things to see in that second half — from the performance of Luiz Araujo, the minutes Josef Martinez was able to play at a high level, and the way the team was organized in a back four — a near disaster turned into a productive night.
