The decision, which deprived CF Montreal of a 2-0 lead, came in the 49and minute, and seven minutes later it was 2-1 for the Union.

Everything suggests that this disallowed goal broke CF Montreal’s momentum, but Wilfried Nancy believes that was not the case.

“After the disallowed goal, I don’t think it’s a question of letting go, we just mismanaged both situations. »


In a game where her team didn’t show their best side, Nancy explained what went wrong with Philadelphia’s two goals.

“The first goal, we had the ball in the back. There is a simple pass and a simple shot. In the timing they did it well and we had a bad reading of the game.

“On the second, there is a mess and the ball has to get out of the penalty area more quickly. »

But now, if Nancy was more tolerant of mistakes last year, he wants to see an evolution in this regard this season.

“I assume that we learn, but we can also avoid them. »

The fact remains that the team surrendered twice in three minutes on Saturday and twice in ten minutes in Orlando last Sunday.

“Is it a question of mental toughness or tactics? I do not know. In Orlando we also allowed two close goals, we will have to adjust to that. »


Defensively, the team played for the first time with the trio Rudy Camacho, Kamal Miller and Alistair Johnston in central defense.

“There are still automatisms to have when you have the ball to find the synchronization between the three players to go forward, recognized Nancy. On the defensive side, they weren’t too bothered. »

On the flanks, the sides struggled to offer quality balls to the attackers. Nancy is not fixated on the centers elsewhere.

“There were opportunities for crosses after they did not arrive in the box as it should.

“I will watch the game to see what needs to be improved. We crossed to cross late in the game, and that’s not what made us score goals. »

We can also add that in the absence of Romell Quioto, Mason Toye and Bjørn Johnsen, he had no offensive option to come and help him from the bench.
