Los Angeles Galaxy 0-1 Colorado Rapids –

Former Galaxy player, Edson Buddle scored the lone goal on this game.

LA Galaxy Head Coach Bruce Arena

His thoughts on the match:
“We just didn’t play well tonight, not well enough to win anyway. Give them credit they got an opportunistic goal and a great finish by Edson.”

On Kofi Opare’s performance in his MLS debut:
“Kofi played very well, I thought Brian Rowe played well, the new players we brought into the lineup did very well.”

On the play of Marcelo Sarvas..:
“Marcelo played well, had a couple chances as well. He’s played well all year. Marcelo played well tonight.”

On MLS cancelling games during competitive international windows:
“Well it’s ridiculous we have to play these games in these windows. We have such a congested schedule, I don’t think we’ve played Colorado yet this year with our team, which is ridiculous. You know, you’re in playoff races and I think every time, I don’t know if every time is a fixture window but for whatever reason we’ve not played them yet with our full team.”

On the importance of this game:
“It’s not a throw-away game, even though the way we schedule in the league we do make games very peculiar, difficult, but it’s certainly not a throw-away game. We played this game certainly to win tonight.”

On scoring a goal for a third consecutive game:
“For me, I’m a striker. I like to give the team a goal and then get going. This year there’s been a lot of ups-and-downs so to get myself going feels great. For the team, it was big. We needed these three points because the standings are really tight and to do it on the road, in this place, is not easy so we just have to build on this and keep going.”

On playing against his former team:
“Not only do I like playing here, I like coming here in general. It’s a great city. Before I got here, I always liked playing here so to play here and comeback it’s still the same feeling.”

On next week’s game against FC Dallas:
“It’s good to be at home because of the altitude. Right now, like I said, all these games, because the standings are so tight that every point counts, we just want to capitalize on being home. They are not an easy team. I think we were up 2-0, last time we played them, and they were able to get an equalizer so we have to build on this game. We will enjoy this win and get better during the week.”
