Ghanaian forward Latif Blessing has praised his LAFC teammates for a "great' performance in their 2-2 draw with New York City FC in the Major League Soccer in the United States.

The midfielder was in top form and created the assists for his side's two goals , which were converted by former Arsenal star Carlos Vela.

" Great team performance today. Same energy,same drip of versatility and same #Game_changer gimme 100 minutes additional time. Thanks to ALLAH for those assists today," he posted on Facebook.

Carlos Vela scored his second and third goals of the season, twice bringing LAFC level from a goal behind in the draw against New York City FC at Yankee Stadium.

The Mexican's finish after Latif Blessing's service just before halftime made it 1-1 going into the break.

Then Vela converted cooly from the penalty spot after Blessing induced Ben Sweat into a foul in the area 14 minutes from full time. He might have also added an assist if not for some better finishing early on by his teammates.
