Speaking to the Washington Post about his injury Moreno said, "It was pretty sore and going to New York I don't think the turf would have helped.
"We decided it was best for me to stay. The weekend it was still sore, the last couple days it got a little better and today its better.
"We have to be careful because these things sometimes play games with you. I have to feel 100 percent to be sure."
Moreno watched his team 3-2 victory comeback on TV with family and friends. At the end: "We all went crazy. I almost smashed a lamp above my head!"
