Well, the match against Columbus Crew was always going to be a tough game. We knew how good they were as a team, and how well they are playing at the moment. They’ve already qualified for the playoffs and are full of confidence. Unfortunately we made a mistake right at the end of the first half and they scored. We had our chances though, which was good to see, we just didn't put them away. Obviously it’s another tough defeat for us, but at least we showed great character.
We’re still in a position where we can qualify for the playoffs, but it’s going to be very tough and everyone has to play at the top of their game in the remaining matches.
I’m away with England now, so I’ll miss the game against Colorado Rapids, but I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for the lads and hope we get the right result.
This is the first time the England lads have been together since the matches against Andorra and Croatia, and we'll take the confidence from those games and go for two positive results against Kazakhstan and Belarus
I’ll let you know how the matches go.
All the best,
