Ghanaian winger Latif Blessing was in action for LAFC as they suffered elimination from the MLS is Back Tournament after a penalty shoot-out defeat to Orlando City.

The 23-year-old lasted the entire duration of the game with a scintillating performance, but it was not enough for his side to progress to the semi-finals of the competition.

The Black & Gold took the lead after the recess in the 60th minute through Bradley Wright-Phillips, who tapped home inside the six-yard box, turning home a Diego Rossi cutback cross.

Bu Joao Moutinho's last-minute header for Orlando City leveled the scoreline.

Blessing executed his spot-kick perfectly, but Jordan Harvey's rattled effort hit the crossbar as LAFC lost 5-4 on penalties.

The former Liberty Professionals ace has been one of the key players for LAFC in the MLS is Back tourney, playing in all five games and scoring in the quarter-final victory over Seattle Sounders.
