Atlanta United coach Gonzalo Pineda has appreciated his team for their reaction in their dramatic 2-1 win over Charlotte FC on Sunday in the MLS. Having led the tie through Josef Martinez’s 60th-minute penalty, the Five Stripes were staring down the chances of affording Charlotte FC their first point in the MLS when Adam Armour equalized.

 

Pineda said : “(In) the second half, the adjustments (that Charlotte made) worked,” the Mexican coach said after the final whistle. “It was almost man-for-man in certain parts of the field, and it took us a while to really break that down.” The Atlanta United coach continued, “The reaction of my team is what I loved,” Pineda raved. “The players impacting the game from the bench [was] a massive positive (as well as) the reaction from my players with their heart, their passion, their intensity, winning duels, winning tackles, sending messages here and there. I think it’s a good reward for the team, that goal from Jake”.
