Harrison Afful sets new MLS career-high in assists
Ghana defender Harrison Afful has chalked another historic mark by improving his assists record with Columbus Crew in the MLS.
Defender Harrison Afful provided the assist on Patrick Mullins’ 24th-minute goal during Crew SC’s 3-2 win over the New York Red Bulls on July 28.
Afful received a pass from Milton Valenzuela and quickly played a through ball to Mullins, who scored shortly thereafter. The assist was Afful’s fourth of the season, marking a new MLS single-season career-high for the Ghanaian, whose previous MLS single-season career-high was three helpers (2016).
In 2018, Afful has made 22 regular-season appearances (all starts), scoring one goal and providing four assists. Since joining the Black & Gold, Afful has made 85 regular-season appearances (82 starts), while scoring four goals and providing 10 assists.
