It feels great to score first MLS goal - Jonathan Mensah

Ghana defender Jonathan Mensah is delighted to have netted his first Major League Soccer goal to help Columbus Crew beat FC Dallas 2-1 on Saturday.

Mensah applied a diving header to Federico Higuain's free-kick to give the Black and Gold an assurance goal.

''The guy that was marking me was very tight—I took him in and then went outside so it was a great ball from [Federico Higuain] and I was there at the right moment and I got it right,'' Mensah said.

''It’s always great to get a goal when this is my first MLS goal. We needed it because they were pushing us, we were leading 1-0, and so the second goal was very crucial for us.

''All of the guys were happy for me, that’s why they all came to celebrate with me.''
