Afful’s Columbus Crew will now face Adam Kwarasey’s Portland Timbers at Mapfre Stadium on December 6

Ghanaian duo Harrison Afful and Adam Kwarasey will battle it out for the Major League Soccer Cup next month.

A late scare arrived for Columbus when Anatole Abang broke the deadlock in stoppage time, but Afful’s side survived the onslaught to secure a 2-1 aggregate success over New York Red Bull to win the Eastern Conference Championship.

Afful’s Columbus Crew will now face Adam Kwarasey’s Portland Timbers at Mapfre Stadium on December 6.

Goalkeeper Kwarsey made a series of saves to inspire Timbers to progress as Western Conference champions on a 5-3 aggregate scoreline against Dallas.

Portland Timbers had secured a 3-1 win in the first leg a week ago, and in the second leg where they drew 2-2, Kwarasey’s most glorious moment came in the 32nd minute where he saved off a goal-bound header to keep the scores at 0-0 at halftime.
