Ghana defender Harrison Afful was back in action for Columbus Crew who beat Toronto FC 2-1 at home to go top of the Eastern Conference.

The right back missed last weekend's defeat to Chicago Fire due to a hand injury.

His international teammate Jonathan Mensah missed the tie due to injury and fellow countryman Mohammed Abu was an unused substitute.

Toronto opened the scoring with a Jozy Altidore header off a Victor Vazquez corner kick in the 21st minute, but Kamara equalized with a 37th minute tap in off an assist by the rookie midfielder Niko Hansen.

The game-winner came in the 44th minute when midfielder Justin Meram cleverly placed the ball in the bottom corner of the net after Homegrown Player Alex Crognale headed a corner kick into the 6-yard box.
