KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Sporting Kansas City midfielder Roger Espinoza did not mince his words after his team dropped a 1-0 home decision to the Chicago Fire on Friday night.
“We should be playing better,” the Honduran international midfielder said. “But these losses happen. That’s just soccer. It’s very frustrating.
“We felt like we had the best of the game, and when you lose there’s just nothing you can do about it. We definitely had our opportunities. I don’t think we played great, but we played better than they did.”
Kansas City (29 points), which fell to 9-5-2, lost to the Fire (8-5-3, 27) for the second time this season.
“Maybe it’s just our style of play against their style of play,” Espinoza said. “I don’t think they necessarily have our number. They just defended well and it wasn’t our night. Hopefully that will change the next time we play them—we play them one more time.”
The teams won’t play against until they meet at Livestrong Sporting Park on Sept. 28.
