Ghana’s Dominic Oduro reaches 300 games in MLS

Ghana and Montreal Impact striker Dominic Oduro has reached a milestone in the Major League Soccer (MLS) as he celebrates his 300th MLS appearance.

The Ghanaian striker joined an elite club of players with 300 appearances. He becomes the 33rd outfield player in the league history to reach 300 appearances as well as the 13th among active players.

Before Montreal Impact’s 1-0 win over the Houston Dynamo over the weekend, club president Joey Saputo handed a jersey with number 300 to Oduro to celebrate his enviable feat.

The 30-year-old striker told Impact Media that he was proud of his record after spending more than a decade in the MLS.

“Little did I know I was going to hit my 11th year; I just wanted to do well. 300 games tell me that I’ve been doing well, because you don’t get this far without being a good player. And it shows that you’ve been very consistent”.

He was overwhelmed by the number of messages he received from well-wishers.

“The reaction was heartwarming. Having people saying congratulations via text, via Twitter, it shows the love and support that people have around me. It has made me a better player over the years. I want to thank everybody”, Oduro noted.

He said he will continue to enjoy himself in the MLS.

“I’m still young, but it’s one game at a time. For me, it’s about never getting comfortable. You never know where you are going to be tomorrow. Players come and go. I’m still here. I want to keep having fun and keep playing”.

Apart from current club Montreal, Dominic Oduro who was selected 22nd overall by FC Dallas at the 2006 MLS SuperDraft has represented Toronto FC, Columbus Crew SC, Chicago Fire, Houston Dynamo as well as New York Red Bulls.

Oduro said he will cherish his consistency in the MLS and that he can’t wait to get his new jersey framed.
