USMNT Coach Bruce Arena Sees Senior-team Future for Tommy Redding

Orlando City is of the mindset that it needs to “hit the reset button.”

Yeah, for sure, we need to hit the reset button. But before we hit the reset button, I think that it’s important that we take ownership of that performance. And so that’s what we’ve been talking to our players about is that while we’re very happy with where we’re at right now, being 6-3, we can’t be content, we can’t be complacent. And I felt like the first half against Toronto and the majority of the match against Houston, there was an air of complacency in the group. And that cannot be us. So now it’s fully on us to show that that was a blip in the road. To take ownership of it and to move forward.

Here are City head coach Jason Kreis’ thoughts on Sporting Kansas City not having Dom Dwyer playing.

Yeah, I mean, you tend to think that somebody that’s that important for them and sort of their leading goal-scorer, the guy they look to score the majority of their goals being out is always going to have an effect. But we gotta be careful that we don’t relax about that situation because whoever plays in his spot, I’m sure will be a quality player as well.

Orlando City SC is coming off its first losing streak of the season, following a 2-1 loss to Toronto FC on May 3 and a 4-0 loss to the Houston Dynamo on May 6.
