“I am very confident. The momentum is good, Nancy said in a video conference on Friday afternoon.

“It’s up to me and my staff to find the best formula to face a club that is in great shape at the moment.  »

Due to red cards or an accumulation of cards, midfielder Victor Wanyama will not be available at Audi Field, nor will defenders Rudy Camacho and Aljaz Struna.

“The team I’m going to put on the field will be very competitive,” said Nancy. The way we work on a daily basis, there are already several combinations. I’m not worried.

“We already have the automation. It is perhaps more at the level of the rhythm that will make the difference.  »

Kamal Miller could be put in charge of the defense midfielder.

“It shouldn’t be too big of an adjustment,” Miller said.

“Rudy is the one who touches the ball most often. It brings more responsibilities. I’m going to have to figure out when to keep the ball and when to step up the tempo.

“It’s a good thing to add that to what I can offer.  »

DC United have two wins and two draws in four meetings.

The club are undefeated in their last three home games in MLS.

As for the CF, a streak of six games without loss, including four wins, was followed by four games without winning.

“Our squad can be very interesting, but they can also let go of points like in the last game (against Atlanta, where a 2-0 cushion turned into a 2-2 draw).

“It’s different types of mistakes that have led to opposing goals lately,” he added. The key is to learn from them, not to repeat them.  »

“It’s good for everyone to have good results: it strengthens the dynamic, individually and collectively.  »

Nancy also commented on Canada’s gold medal in women’s soccer at the Tokyo Olympics.

“Everything is a process and when you work well for the long haul, good things happen,” he said. They are an example. We are very happy and very proud.  »

Miller echoed it.

“It’s amazing, especially for the older players who may be in their last Games,” said the 24-year-old Ontarian. This is a major achievement. All of Canada is happy about it.  »
