Miami, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 3rd Dec, 2023) The Columbus Crew came back from two goals down to beat top-seeded FC Cincinnati 3-2 after extra-time in a thrilling Major League Soccer Eastern Conference final, booking a place in next week's MLS Cup.
Aaron Boupendza whipped in a cross from the left which US international Vazquez collected before swivelling and burying the ball in the far corner.
Cincinnati had finished rock bottom of the league in their first three seasons in MLS but after tasting the playoffs last year, they have been transformed this season.
Boupendza almost killed off the Crew when he found space inside the box but his shot, heading to the far corner, was superbly saved by Crew keeper Patrick Schulte.
Uruguayan Diego Rossi, who had been superb throughout the game with his clever movement, headed over from a promising position in the 80th minute.
Five minutes later though, the Crew got their reward, when after a clever exchange inside the box by Ramirez and Cucho Hernandez, Rossi poked in the equalizer.
Ramirez had got the late winner in the previous round of the playoffs against Orlando and the 32-year-old Californian was hailed as the hero again at the final whistle.
