NEW YORK (June 1, 2018) – The Independent Panel, consisting of one representative from the United States Soccer Federation, one representative from the Canadian Soccer Association, and one independent representative nominated by the Professional Referee Organization, has unanimously rescinded the one-game suspension and accompanying fine for the red card issued to Columbus Crew SC midfielder Federico Higuaín for violent conduct in the 45+ minute of Crew SC’s match against Sporting Kansas City on May 27 (VIDEO).

As a result of the Columbus appeal, Higuaín is eligible to play in Crew SC’s next regular season game on June 2 against Toronto FC.

Each club is entitled to two unsuccessful appeals per season, including playoffs. Since Columbus’ appeal was successful, the team maintains its two unsuccessful appeals for any future dismissals in the 2018 season.

COLUMBUS — Columbus Crew SC travels to Children’s Mercy Park to face Sporting Kansas City tomorrow, Sunday, May 27, in a nationally televised clash and the lone regular-season meeting between the two clubs in 2018. The match kicks-off at 6:00 p.m. ET and is set to be televised nationally on FS1 with Nate Bukaty, Dan Kennedy and Katie Witham calling match action. Tomorrow’s match also airs locally on the radio on CD102.5 FM in English with pre-match coverage hosted by Dwight Burgess beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET. Neil Sika will have the CD 102.5 FM call of the match at 6:00 p.m. ET, with post-match coverage to follow. The club’s official website, ColumbusCrewSC.com, is set to stream the English-language radio broadcast online as well as host the Spanish-language audio broadcast with Juan Valladares behind the microphone.

Last week, Crew SC left Gillette Stadium with three points thanks to a late goal from Lalas Abubakar. In the 85th minute, Federico Higuain delivered a corner kick to Abubakar who headed it nicely inside the far post for the victory over the New England Revolution.

Sporting Kansas City is coming off of a draw at Minnesota United. Both teams produced a goal in the first half but neither side was able to find a winner through the duration of the game.

In their last meeting, Crew SC and Sporting KC split points at MAPFRE Stadium. An early lead by Sporting KC gave way to an equalizer from Columbus at the end of the first half. Midfielder Pedro Santos sent a corner kick to Ola Kamara who delivered to the back of the net. Crew SC is 22-25-7 all time against Sporting KC.

The Black & Gold currently have the longest active shutout streak in Major League Soccer this season as the club has gone 405 minutes without conceding a goal. Columbus remains unbeaten in six games with four consecutive shutouts.

Crew SC’s Gyasi Zardes recent MLS Alcatel Player of the Week

PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY & COURTESY OF MLS COMMUNICATIONS

 

 

NEW YORK (Tuesday, May 15, 2018) – Columbus Crew SC forward Gyasi Zardes was voted the Alcatel Major League Soccer Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) for the 11th week of the 2018 MLS season.

Columbus defeated the Philadelphia Union 1-0 on Wednesday at MAPFRE Stadium behind a Zardes goal, with the 26-year-old scoring two more times in Saturday’s 3-0 home victory over the Chicago Fire. With the three scores this week, Zardes is now tied for the Golden Boot lead with eight goals scored in 12 matches played this season. Columbus sits in second place in the Eastern Conference with 21 points (6-3-3 overall record).

The U.S. Men’s National Team member would score the only goal in Crew SC’s victory over Philadelphia, finding the ball in front of goal off a defensive deflection to finish with a left-footed tap-in from close range for a 1-0 lead in the 53rd minute (Watch Goal).

Zardes continued to show his scoring prowess three days later, giving Columbus a 2-0 advantage in the 50th minute with a left-footed touch from right in front of goal, set up by Niko Hansen’s sideline run (Watch Goal). Crew SC would take a 3-0 lead in the 70th minute when Ricardo Clark passed the ball into the box, with Mike Grella faking a shot to leave enough open space for Zardes to send a right-footed blast just inside the right post (Watch Goal ). The multi-goal performance was the second of the season and sixth in Zardes’ MLS career.

The Alcatel MLS Player of the Week is chosen each week of the regular season by members of the North American Soccer Reporters. The organization includes print, television, radio and online journalists who cover domestic men’s soccer in the United States and Canada.

Gyasi Zardes

Zardes named MLS Player of the Week for Week 11 after scoring three goals in two matches and helping Crew SC earn consecutive wins

 

COLUMBUS – Columbus Crew this past week announced that forward Gyasi Zardes was voted Alcatel Major League Soccer Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) for Week 11 of the 2018 MLS season. It is the first Player of the Week honor for Zardes, as well as the first such honor for the Black & Gold this season.

 

Zardes earned the award for Week 11, in which he played two matches in four days (as well as his third match in eight days overall) and scored three goals. Zardes scored the game-winning goal in Crew SC’s 1-0 home victory over the Philadelphia Union on Wednesday, May 9. Three days later, the 26-year-old forward registered a brace in a 3-0 win against the Chicago Fire at MAPFRE Stadium, including a 70th-minute strike which was nominated for MLSSoccer.com’s AT&T Goal of the Week. Zardes’ brace against Chicago marked the second time that the forward has scored two goals in the 2018 regular season, as he previously netted two strikes in a 3-2 home victory over the Montreal Impact on March 10.

Through 12 matches in the 2018 MLS regular season, Zardes has scored eight goals and is currently tied with Josef Martinez of Atlanta United FC for first place in the MLS Golden Boot race. Zardes’ eight tallies in regular-season action mark his second-highest goal output behind only the 16 goals he scored in 2014 with the LA Galaxy. Additionally, Zardes is the only player to have started every match for Crew SC and currently leads the team in minutes (1,058), goals (eight), shots (26) and shots on target (13). His two game-winning goals in regular-season action tie him with Federico Higuain for most on the team.

The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by a panel of journalists from the NASR. The group consists of members of print, television, radio and online media.
