Ghana defender Harrison Afful earned high marks on Wednesday night as he massively helped his Columbus Crew outfit to defeat Philadelphia Union 1-0 in the Major League Soccer (MLS).

The explosive defender was part of a back four that also included his compatriot Jonathan Mensah yesterday when Crew played as a host to their Matchday 9 opponent at the Mapfre Stadium.

The experienced full-back stepped on the gas throughout the night and massively impressed with his defensive work as well as his contribution to the attack of his team.

At the end of the narrow win, Harrison Afful earned a high rating of 7.9 from top statistics providers SofaScore, the second-highest by any player on the pitch on the night.
