CF Montreal lost the first of two pre-season games on Thursday, 2-0 to Georgia’s Third Division Tormenta FC.
We want to tell you about the meeting, but it was played behind closed doors without video transmission. We did not even reveal the identities of the players we played for.
Watch the Wilfried Nancy Press briefing in the video above.
“We played with the roster for 45 minutes and the other 45 with different players,” head coach Wilfried Nancy told a virtual press briefing.
“Having an early lineup is too early. We, the coaches, need to look a lot.”
“For the first game, it’s always interesting to see the team, especially after two days together, Nancy said. We did some good things and there were others to work with.”
“We have the courage to be a little higher on the pitch, and I love watching the defensive line to bring the block up by connecting with the attackers.”
However, Nancy does not have a ton of time to prepare her team, which will begin its season in Fort Lauderdale against Toronto FC next Saturday.
“We did two training sessions on Wednesday and we have to prioritize, we can’t go faster than music,” Nancy said as she spearheaded the team in her first season and needed to change defensive sites and dangerous situations.
Not much time
Since the group arrived from Montreal in the Orlando area, the team has met again for the first time in the pre-season, and time is running out, with only another preparatory meeting taking place early Sunday evening.
“We want to give everyone a chance to play,” Nancy confirmed. On Sunday, we need to keep things, and it will be closer to the holders who see on the 17th. “
Last week, Nancy suggested that starters were physically ready to play for the first game of the season. Since then the discourse has evolved.
“It is wrong to say that there are no positions and replacements. I expect a lot more from the old and the new because everyone needs time together.
“Next week will be decisive on that. With our pre-season the players know we have to go a little faster, and they are doing more.”
