Jonathan Mensah Lauds Columbus Crew's Fighting Spirit In Win Against Atlanta
LISTEN SEP 16, 2019

Jonathan Mensah has lauded his Columbus Crew teammates in the 3:1 away win against Atlanta on Saturday in MLS.

The experienced Ghanaian defender lasted the entire minutes together with fellow Harrison Afful and they did their best in defence while Luis Diaz, Gyasi Zardes and an own goal from Miles Robinson gave Crew the result o the road.

After the match, 29 year old gave his opinion of his team and the value of the victory for Crew as they chase a place in playoffs.

“The game plan worked, you know? We stuck to the game plan and we were aggressive from the start. Even though we went down a goal we didn’t back down, we kept pushing and we got a big one today.

"It’s a great result for us: defending champions, we beat them home and away this season. It’s great for the team and going forward it gives us a lot of confidence to keep going.

"We take it game after game. After this game we rest, we go back to the training grounds and prepare for the next game. Three [regular-season] games to go, we’re going to take it game after game.”

Mensah, Afful and the Crew are now 11th on the Western Conference table on 34 points and they will face Vancouver Whitecaps (away), Philadelphia Union (home) and Toronto FC (away) in their final three matches of the regular MLS season.
