On winning his first three games with the Dash:

“I was chatting with Jane (Campbell) and Katie (Naughton), they were saying ‘coach, this is a great win for you.’ And I said ‘it’s a great win for us.’ That’s how I believe things are and how things should be. I’m extremely proud of the players and staff. They’ve worked incredibly hard on these long trips on the road. On a personal level for me, I didn’t know I was the first coach to achieve that, buy obviously it is a moment of pride. Coaches we take a lot of time away from our families preparing a lot of things not only when you win, also when you lose.”

On six goals in three games and being in great form:

“Throughout my career I have (always) scored goals. One thing I focused on, especially after my move to Houston was consistency. Which I am starting to find with scoring. From now and till the end of the season, I need to find that. Obviously, I am not going to score every game but as many games as I can.”

On how the team has grown since the NWSL Challenge Cup:

“We have high expectations of each other. Trainings aren’t easy. We always have to be ready, have to be doing our best because everybody on this team is good enough to be in the starting XI. It’s just that motivation in the team, in the locker room that has helped us get where we are right now.”
