FC DALLAS 2, REAL SALT LAKE 0

REAL SALT LAKE HEAD COACH JOHN ELLINGER

On giving up soft goals:
"It kind of eats at you a little bit. We make it easy for the away team to come in here and get a goal, and we don't get one to get back in it."

On the play of Nikolas Besagno:
"He did what we asked him to do. I thought he did well."

On soccer in Utah:
"To have the World Cup Qualifier here was huge for soccer in Utah. The day could have been better for us, but overall it was a great day."

REAL SALT LAKE GOALKEEPER D.J. COUNTESS

On looking forward to next game:
"We need to go back to the drawing board and look ourselves in the mirror. We are having some issues right now and I wouldn't be surprised if there will be some changes next week."

REAL SALT LAKE MIDFIELDER CHRIS BROWN

On preparing for next game:
"We have to start keeping the ball a little more and that leads to a couple of soft goals that end up killing us. We need to start finishing."

REAL SALT LAKE MIDFIELDER ANDY WILLIAMS

On the play of Nikolas Besagno:
"I would give him a 'B' grade overall. I thought he did well and he was probably a little nervous."

On the performance of the team:
"The midfielders and forwards are not the same page. I think we are trying to rush it and tonight just wasn't our night."

FC DALLAS HEAD COACH COLIN CLARKE

On the victory tonight:
"We knew we had to be solid early on because of the atmosphere and the crowd. We knew we had to take chances and we took them."

On the doubleheader:
"The first game was great for everybody. We knew our game was going to be difficult and we are happy to get out of here with three points."
