“I think a lot of positives to get out of this game. I think the score does not reflect what happened on the field. So, for sure, frustrating for the guys. I think we deserve better than that tonight and I think again it’s about keeping our heads up, keep working and moving forward.”—FC Cincinnati Interim Head Coach Yoann Damet
