Colorado Rapids head coach Gary Smith is demanding consistency with his team's level of play. "A lot of their play is decent," Smith said of his squad. "We've got a nice shape to the group. In possession, we're decent. That's what we are at the moment. We're a decent all-around team.

"Are we going to be ultra-creative going forward?" Smith continued. "No. I don't think so. Are we going to be clinical? No. So we have to work a lot harder at every aspect of our game. The standards that these lads set themselves during the week and the standards that they need to achieve have got to be worked at constantly."
