Ghanaian wingers Accam and Latif help clubs consolidate positions in MLS


Ghana’s David Accam and Latif Blessing helped their respective clubs consolidate their positions at the summit of the Major League Soccer (MLS) Eastern and Western Conferences after Week 11 matchups.

Latif Blessing’s Los Angeles FC have already been tagged as the best team in this year’s league after assuming pole position in the Western Conference and even though they failed to score against Chicago Fire in a goalless encounter, they were able to extend their lead on the Western Conference table. Blessing enjoyed full time action in that encounter.

Accam’s Philadelphia Union also occupy the top spot in the Eastern Conference after defeating New England Revolution 6-1 over the weekend. The Ghanaian winger and his Philadelphia Union teammates enjoyed yet another comprehensive home victory few days after beating FC Cincinnati 2-0.

The two victories at the Talen Energy Stadium kept the Union at the summit of the Eastern Conference table, at least for another week.

Accam who scored one of their six goals has so far played eight games and scored four goals this season and he will surely relish more stellar performances for the Union.

The DC United - Columbus Crew encounter also provided some Ghanaian interests but it was only Jonathan Mensah who saw action for the Crew.

Ebenezer Ofori played 68 minutes for New York City FC who defeated Montreal Impact 2-0 on the road.
