Zinho on the Blues' 2-1 win over Montreal

Early deadlines and limited space kept a lot of interesting tidbits of the Blues' historic win over the Impact on the chopping block. Couldn't even fit in a quote from coach Zinho, who has Miami FC in first place of USL-1 for the first time in team history. So, it's time to empty the notebook and give you what the coach said after the game.

What is the significance of beating Montreal?

"It means a lot. The only team we've bever beaten before is Montreal. First of all, I want to thank God ... and then the players. They understood what we wanted to do, and they executed on the field. I'm really happy with this team. We've only had 20 days of work, but you already can tell that they're playing for that shirt, playing for Miami FC. It's like the shirt is their second skin. None of us thought we could do this in 20 days."

How good is Montreal?

"In my opinion, they're one of the three best teams in the league. They've played together for four years, and they've carried over the rhythm from when they played in CONCACAF. It's a team with leadership and a very deep bench. They don't break scheme when they bring players in."

What are your plans, considering Diego Serna won't be available against Rochester Sunday?

"I'm going to take a look at how the players recouperate and put everyone on ice. Saturday, we'll practice and stretch. We'll probably have [Connally] Edozien replace Serna up top. We need to see what exactly the rules are, regarding the red card."

No MFC article in today's paper. MFC is undefeated and playing good.

I was there on Friday night and it was a fantastic game!! I have a really hard time believeing there was only 1,500 people there. There is NO WAY that this was the case. I've been around FIU games and I know what 1,000 fans look that and I know there was more than that number at Friday's match. Was there a certain group of fans who were not counted? Something missing? Something was definetly off in that count.

I love Lockhart, but FIU stadium is sweet!

Maybe they did not count the $5.00 tickets. Soccer fans sould come out to Lockhart and FIU and support Mimai FC. We can do better than 1,500-2,000 fans at the games. Were are all the soccer fans in South Florida? Lets show we care South Florida.

My friends and I paid for those $5 tickets as FIU students. There is no reason why we should not have been counted! I'm guessing there were around 3,000 people there Friday.
