Ghanaians becoming hot commodities in MLS!
Ghana is living up to the billing as Africa’s highest contributor to the MajorLeague Soccer (MLS).

Last season marked the 20th anniversary of the MLS and an infographic provided by www.mlssoccer.com revealed that Ghana had contributed more players to the MLS than any other African country.

Last season, 10 Ghanaians played in the league, aside other Americans and Canadians with various Ghanaian backgrounds.

And out of those 10 Ghanaians, there was an MLS Cup winner, an Eastern Conference champion, and a Western Conference champion.

There was also a Ghanaian winner of the Canadian Championship (Voyageurs Cup), a Ghanaian goalkeeper made the best save of the 2015 MLS season and a club like Chicago Fire named a Ghanaian as their MVP of the year.

When the 2016 edition commences in March, the likes of Lloyd Sam (New York

Red Bulls), Dominic Oduro (Montreal Impact), Patrick Nyarko (formerly of Chicago Fire and now with DC United), Kofi Opare (DC United), Gershon Koffie (formerly of Vancouver Whitecaps and now with New England Revolution), Adam Larsen Kwarasey (Portland Timbers), David Accam (Chicago Fire), Kwadwo Poku

(New York City FC) and Harrison Afful (Columbus Crew) will continue from where they left off last season.

They will be joined by other Ghanaian debutant who have been selected by clubs as either Discovery players or SuperDraft signings.

Youngsters Emmanuel Boateng, Joshua Yaro, Amass Amankana and Richie

Laryea have also joined LA Galaxy, Philadelphia Union, Orlando City SC and Real Salt Lake respectively.

The first round of the 2016 Major League Soccer (MLS) SuperDraft selected Joshua Yaro, Richmond Laryea and Emmanuel Appiah.

Yaro was the second pick overall by Philadelphia Union while Laryea who was born in Canada was selected by Orlando City as the seventh pick.

Emmanuel Appiah was taken 15th overall by Colorado Rapids but it is not likely he will make the first team squad.

Emmanuel Boateng, a product of Right to Dream Academy in Ghana, came to the United States in pursuit of academic laurels but his soccer talent endeared him to LA Galaxy.
