Quotes: Bob Bradley, Fire coach: "It seems like the fans tonight were able to appreciate the game and we're lucky to have so many great soccer fans in this city. We understand that the clubs in Mexico are important to them and we hope that the Chicago Fire can also be the team that they root for here in the United States. "It was nice for Josh to have had a very nice game. He's been a little down on himself lately, feeling that his form hasn't come back as quickly and he would want, and the two goals he scored were important for him. Our younger players are certainly moving in the right direction." DaMarcus Beasley: "I tried to give it my best tonight and I think I did. Toluca is a great team. It's my first game back with the Fire and I felt great. I can't wait to get out there full-time. Toluca plays very quickly and you have to think a lot quicker. Overall, I was happy with the results."
