Ghana duo Harrison Afful and Jonathan Mensah displayed a good form for Columbus Crew while in action against FC Cincinnati on Sunday night in the Major League Soccer.

Harrison Afful put up a good shift in his right-back role as he combined excellent defensive work with his decisive runs to offer assistance to the attack.

Following a commanding performance from Jonathan Mensah in the center of defense, Columbus Crew totally shut out FC Cincinnati as they failed to register a shot on target.

At the end of a very good outing, Harrison Afful finished with a high-rating of 7.5 from Modernghana Sports statistics providers SofaScore. For his compatriot Jonathan Mensah, he came through with a rating of 7.2.
