FRISCO, Texas — First off, read my gamer for your full match recap. And here's my notebook for some extra tidbits. (I had to turn in my notebook before the match so lmao that Collen Warner was subbed off in the second half).
Anyhow, Minnesota United's 2-0 loss to FC Dallas on Saturday at Toyota Stadium marked the debut for left-back Marc Burch and midfielder Sam Cronin after the pair joined the team from the Colorado Rapids earlier this week.
However, the two weren't satisfied with their contributions.
"Obviously, disappointed with the loss and my responsibility for the second goal," Cronin said of his giveaway in dangerous territory. "I let the team down there at the start of the second half. I put us in a big hole to climb out of. So I've got to do much better, and hopefully with time, I improve."
Burch was similarly dissatisfied.
"I mean, I'm a team player, so I don't think I did very well," Burch said. "I think I could have helped my team more, maybe gotten forward a little more, maybe stopped, maybe helped out a little bit on the first goal. I think as a team, we just need to play a little bit better. I think our passing was off. I think we had some bad turnovers in some bad spots, against a team like Dallas that loves to counter-attack, it's just tough to do."
