Crew captain Jonathan Mensah carted off field during international break

The Columbus Crew is in the first weekend away from league play in a two-week international break. Unfortunately for head coach Caleb Porter’s side, it doesn’t mean players are immune from injury. On Sunday, in an African Cup of Nations qualifying match, defender and captain Jonathan Mensah left the field after a collision in the penalty area.

Ghana faced Central Africa Republic in an early qualifying match and in the 55th minute, Central Africa Republic had a free kick in the team’s offensive half of the field. In a match tied 1-1, a cross was sent into the penalty box that Ghana easily cleared away.
