New York Red Bulls skipper Thierry Henry is confident he and his teammates are in a good mental situation ahead of their first Conference semi-final leg against Supportersâ€™ Shield winners LA Galaxy this weekend.
The Red Bulls meet the Galaxy at Red Bull Arena on Sunday and although the Frenchman is expecting a very tough test, he feels that things within the New York group have improved dramatically in the past few weeks.
â€śWe know itâ€™s going to be way more difficult against L.A. Weâ€™ve seen it in the league this year; we know it wonâ€™t be easy,â€™â€™ said Henry.
â€śDonâ€™t get me wrong: Weâ€™re in a better situation now the way weâ€™re playing, mentally (than before). The team looks much stronger because weâ€™re playing as a team.
â€śI know now everybodyâ€™s going to say L.A. against the Red Bulls is going to be a big game, but theyâ€™re the favorites. Weâ€™re going to try to cause an upset.â€ť
