2020 MLS: Accam, Danladi begin life at Nashville with defeat

Ghana’s David Accam and Abu Danladi have begun new lives with new Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise Nashville SC with a defeat as they succumbed to 2018 MLS Cup winners Atlanta United.

The 2-1 defeat to Atlanta was a reality check for the expansion side who took a lot of positive lessons from their inaugural MLS game.

Defender Walker Zimmerman scored the first goal in Nashville’s MLS history after 29 minutes but Atlanta’s two goals came on their only two shots on target in the game.

Accam who played 65 minutes of the game, came close to scoring his first goal for Nashville when his outstretched foot in the opening minutes of the second half to a Dominique Badji cross missed narrowly.

His Ghanaian compatriot Abu Danladi played just the last 11 minutes of the game.

Meanwhile, defenders Harrison Afful and Jonathan Mensah tasted victory when Columbus Crew defeated New York City FC 1-0. They both played the entire duration of the game with Mensah assuming his new role as the captain of the side.

Winger Latif Blessing also helped Los Angeles FC to a 1-0 victory over another expansion side Inter Miami. The Ghanaian was in action for 89 minutes as he was substituted late in the game after receiving a knock.

Defender Lalas Abubakar also helped Colorado Rapids to a 2-1 victory on the road against DC United. Lalas played the entire duration of the game while Emmanuel Boateng and Chris Odoi-Atsem were unused substitutes for DC United.
