Six Ghanaians & and their clubs hoping to book MLS Playoffs tickets

The Major League Soccer (MLS) returns into full swing with clubs making final attempts to clinch remaining tickets to the Audi 2016 MLS Cup Playoffs.

With David Accam’s Chicago Fire and Harrison Afful’s Columbus Crew eliminated from playoffs contention, At least six more Ghanaians could help their clubs book tickets to the playoffs as the regular season nears completion.

The playoff field could be settled this weekend, as Gershon Koffie’s New England Revolution could be eliminated from contention through various combinations of results.

DC United are fifth on the Eastern Conference table and when they invite New York City FC who are already qualified for the playoffs to the RFK Stadium, there will be only one mission for Ghana’s Patrick Nyarko, Lloyd Sam and Kofi Opare – securing a playoff spot.

The permutation is simple for the Ghanaian trio and their DC teammates: A victory over highflying NYCFC will seal a playoff spot. They could also qualify if they are able to tie with NYCFC with New England failing to beat Chicago Fire.

Dominic Oduro’s Montreal Impact are also on the verge of securing a ticket to the playoffs. Victory over their Canadian nemesis Toronto FC will be enough to take them to the postseason. They will also be good for the playoffs if New England fail to beat Chicago Fire.

Joshua Yaro’s Philadelphia Union could also answer the playoffs call if they manage a victory over Orlando City with Montreal Impact failing to beat Toronto FC. They could also win or draw against Orlando City and still qualify if New England lose or draw against Chicago Fire.

Emmanuel Appiah’s Sporting KC could also clinch a playoff berth if they beat Real Salt Lake and Portland Timbers fail to beat Columbus Crew. The outcome of Seattle Sounders game against FC Dallas could also hand a playoff ticket to Sporting KC.
