Colorado Rapids boss Pareja rues opening day loss to FC Dallas

Colorado Rapids head coach Oscar Pareja felt his side were harshly done by in their 2013 season opener.

The Rapids were beaten 1-0 by FC Dallas in Frisco when Jackson Goncalves scored with a simple tap-in after a defensive blunder goalkeeper Steward Ceus in the 11th minute and Pareja was of the belief that his side were not deserving of a loss.

"I thought we were the best team on the field from the first minute to 90 full minutes," said Pareja. "But we made a mistake and we paid for it."

He added: "I'm very proud of the boys. The goal was a mistake, but I'm very proud of the team and very happy with the performance.

"The guys played very well today and created options. We dictated tempo. We were all over."

Colorado now look to the second week of MLS action when they host Philadelphia Union next weekend.
