Edward Opoku Excited After Making His MLS Debut
Columbus Crew forward Edward Opoku has expressed delight in making his MLS debut in a dramatic comeback victory against Orlando City on Saturday.
The 21-year-old came on in the 68th minute to replace Niko Hansen when the club was trailing 2-1 and made a huge impact as the gold and blacks overturned the result to win 3-2.
