Here are Colin's keys to the 'caps first ever match with St. Louis CITY SC.

Be organized

St. Louis are lethal on the counter attack.

They have capitalized and made teams pay for mistakes all season long.

We must be organized defensively when we have the ball.

Play direct

There are goals to be scored.

Play direct and in the channels between the centre back and fullback.

There will be opportunities once the space has been created.

Clean sheet

St. Louis have scored the most goals in the Western Conference, and the second most in the league.

We need to aim for a clean sheet, and be very difficult to score against.

We can’t afford to gift them anything.
