Ghana’s Latif Blessing enjoyed full throttle for his team Los Angeles FC in their comfortable win in the Major League Soccer opener at home to Austin FC.
The diminutive midfielder was among the midfield three in a 4-3-3 formation and operated perfectly from the right side of the middle to help his side get their season of to a flyer.
Despite the early injury to their starman from Mexico, Carlos Vela, the Black and Gold side played the game with confidence and secured a vital win to kick start the 2021 campaign.
The former Liberty Professionals Player created two good goal-scoring opportunities in the match and had a 86 percent pass success rate in the game.
Latif was very dominant in the game and gave 28 forward passes in the opposition half and won 8 duels out of 16 despite his size.
The Ghanaian was fouled twice in the game and was successful in three of his attempted dribbles and defended very well with successful tackles out of the attempted three.
Corey Baird and José Cifuentes were the goal scorers for LAFC who ended the game as 2-0 victors.
