Ghana defender Harrison Afful made the Major League Soccer Team of the Week after the final round of matches to end the regular season.

The Columbus Crew star was tormentor-in-chief as his side beat DC United to finish second on the Eastern Conference table.

Crew have now qualified for the MLS play-off stage.

Read on to find out who else made the Team of the Week, presented by EA SPORTS FIFA 16, for Week 34:

GK: Andre Blake (Philadelphia Union) – Came up with a couple of really big saves to keep the Union from falling behind or moving to even terms. He was also good in coming out to collect crosses in the Philadelphia’s 1-0 win.

D: Harrison Afful (Columbus Crew SC) – Lived in the D.C. third, whipping in cross after cross from the right flank to give United headaches all night long.

D: Damien Perrinelle (New York Red Bulls) – Made sure the Red Bulls took home the Shield with his eight clearances in New York’s victory at Chicago.

D: Kendall Waston (Vancouver Whitecaps) – Scored in the final game of the season for the second year in a row and added six clearances and four interceptions on the defensive end in the Whitecaps’ home win against Houston.

D: Chris Tierney (New England Revolution) – Was dangerous going forward all night in the Bronx, adding an assist to his season total, while playing solid defensively.
