SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES MIDFIELDER TOMMY THOMPSON
On his goal:
"We have a couple different set pieces that we work on; Magnus [Eriksson] and Cristian [Espinoza] can both whip a great ball in. We get a lot of guys in the box for a reason and I'm glad it payed off on that play."
On the team's consistency in attack:
"That's what I love about this team this year, whether we are at home or away, we want to put teams on the back foot. That showed today. We were unfortunate not to get a couple more goals there, but that's soccer. We put this one in the back pocket and we move on. We have an important game against Real Salt Lake in a couple days."
On comparing today's result with the reverse result:
"You can see the difference in the team. Every week we are growing and it shows on the field. Especially if you track all the way back to the beginning of the season, games against New York, Minnesota, LAFC - you can see the growth each week. We understand the system more and more and we've got a full roster that can play. I've said it many times this year, but I'm excited for what's to come. "
