Chivas USA Head Coach Preki was extremely happy with his team's second half performance in their opening game of the season against the Colorado Rapids at The Home Depot Center in Carson California. He said: "All of a sudden, the last 10 minutes of the [first half] I think we picked up a little bit, and carried that into the second half. At halftime we brought Galindo on the field, and every time we have Galindo on the field, we're a different team -- that's not a secret. Second half we were a little bit better, we found a way to get two good goals by Paulo [Nagamura], and we had another 5-6 moments that I thought we could've done better, and killed the game a little bit earlier. But we'll take the win the way it is."
