Dominic Oduro clashes with Harrison Afful again as MLS resumes


The Major League Soccer (MLS) bounces back after a short break with some Ghanaians ready for more clashes.

This season’s campaign has seen many Ghanaians clashing in various intriguing pairings and this weekend’s fixtures are no exception.

Montreal Impact who currently occupies the third spot on the Eastern Conference table will lock horns with struggling Columbus Crew SC for the third time this season.

This means that Ghana and Montreal Impact’s Dominic Oduro would be locking horns with compatriot Harrison Afful who has remained a constant figure in the Crew’s defense since joining the MLS.

The last meeting between the two at the Mapfre Stadium on May 7 saw former Crew’s striker Kei Kamara and Federico Higuaín scoring two goals each for Crew SC.

But African legend Didier Drogba scored a goal and added two assists, including setting up Dominic Oduro’s stoppage-time equalizer in a 4-4 draw.

But on April 9, the Impact registered a 2-0 victory at Olympic Stadium.

The third meeting provides a perfect opportunity for Afful and Oduro to settle the scores once and for all.

Two Ghanaian youngsters – Kwadwo Poku and Joshua Yaro may come face to face when New York City FC host Philadelphia Union at the Yankee Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

NYCFC are winless in their last three home games and are without a victory now after four games.

However, the Union have extended their undefeated streak to a club-record tying eight games in their last match, a 3-2 win against Columbus Crew SC on June 1 at Talen Energy Stadium.

This is the second meeting between NYCFC and the Union this season and the likely inclusion of Yaro for Philadelphia and Poku for New York may provide some Ghanaian interests. NYCFC lost the first encounter by 0-2 and will need to make amends this time round.

Gershon Koffie has been sidelined for some time due to a knee sprain but he is hoping to be declared fit when his new club New England Revolution travel to Canada to face his formal club Vancouver Whitecaps.

Emmanuel Boateng’s LA Galaxy will play as guests of Toronto FC with Colorado Rapids playing host to David Accam’s Chicago Fire.

Patrick Nyarko and Kofi Opare will travel with DC United to face the might of Houston Dynamo in Texas while Lloyd Sam and Gideon Baah are likely to be in action on Sunday when New York Red Bulls entertain Seattle Sounders at the Red Bull Arena.
