Columbus Crew midfielder Rogers gets Man of the Match for U.S.A
On the match: "I think we accomplished what we wanted to today. We wanted to come out with some energy and make a stamp on the game. There are things we can get better at, and we all know that. We're just looking forward to the next game."
On his assists: "I think both assists were pretty similar. I had a lot of time, and there was a bunch of guys in the box. When you have numbers, you are just trying to put the ball in the mixer. Our guys did a good job of finishing them."
On his goal: "I felt like they weren't following me when I made late runs through the midfield, so I just tried to change it up with my run. Logan played a great ball, and I read the offside trap. I was going to pass the ball, but I wound up doing an OK job of finishing it."
On the chemistry of the team: "I think what really helped was the January camp, when we came in and worked for two or three weeks to prepare for the Sweden game. We all put in a lot of work during the January camp, and when you're sweating and working for each other it's nice to come out here and play together and get a good result."
