Columbus Crew coach hails 'exceptional' Harrison Afful

Columbus Crew coach Gregg Berhalter has hailed Ghana defender Harrison Afful for his performance in the side's 3-3 draw with Toronto FC in the Major League Soccer on Saturday.

The 31-year-old Ghana international was impressive for the Black and Gold lads as they came back from three goals down to force a 3-3 draw with Toronto FC on Saturday.

The former Asante Kotoko marauding right-back enjoyed full throttle of the match at the MAPFRE Stadium.

"When I think of the second half that he [Afful] played, [it] was amazing," said, Berhalter, who earlier singled the 31-year-old out for compliment after last month's 1-0 win over Philadelphia Union."

"The relentlessness. When we talk about how you give the defense trouble, it’s running behind their line, and he did that over and over and over again."

"To me, it was an exceptional performance by Harrison as the game went on in terms of how he competed and how he got himself into this game."

Afful has made 14 league appearances, all full-time outings, so far for Crew this season.
