Post-match: Henry, Pique, Henry and Henrique

Barcelona players Thierry Henry, Jonathan Dos Santos, Henrique and Gerard Pique took part in yesterday's friendly game against Seattle Sounders and shared their thoughts with Washington regional newspaper The Seattle Times:

Thierry Henry
"It was amazing. It really reminded me of a crowd in Europe, they were all cheering the Sounders and rightly so. It was tremendous and a great atmosphere, they made it really difficult for us in the first half. They had a go at us and they nearly scored two goals, and we scored two goals. We are working hard this preseason, playing two games each day. It isn't easy but we had a good game.

Jonathan dos Santos
"It is marvelous to play in a stadium like this. It is also great to play with world-wide players such as Lionel Messi and other guys on the Barcelona team. The Sounders played a very good game and their competitiveness was really good. They were pressing us in their offense. They have very good players such as Ljungberg who is driving the team."

"We played well and did some good passes with the ball. The were able to defend us very well, but we were still able to get good pressure and score some goals. This is the second time I have been over here in the US and I'm happy to be back. We're very happy about the fans because they were very loud and cheer the teams, which motivated to play really well."

Gerard Piqué
"I think we played good, the Sounders are a very good team. I think the thing is continue with the competition against good teams and get better everyday."
