Columbus Crew head coach Robert Warzycha, who before his team's 4-1 loss to Real Salt Lake wanted more concentration, was left frustrated after just two minutes. Real Salt Lake's Robbie Findley scored from a rebound from a 40 yard free-kick in the second minute and coach Warzycha was very aware his team would then have an uphill battle.

"We talked about not giving up goals in the beginning of the game," said Warzycha, "but obviously those are valuable to not give up, and from the second minute you start to chase the game. Sometimes that's very, very difficult, especially away from home."
