Montreal Impact coach Thierry Henry said the team committed very many avoidable mistakes hence the loss.

“We have to give credit to New England, they wanted to win more than us and they worked harder for it. We made too many mistakes under no pressure individually and as a team and hopefully, we will come back strongly,” he said in the post-match conference held via Zoom.

The former Arsenal striker knelt down as the match kicked off and he explained this was in support of the “Black Lives Matter” cause.
