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.”
