Portland Timbers goalkeeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey has lauded the club’s achievement after defeating Columbus Crew, who had Ghana defender Harrison Afful in their squad, 2-1 in the final of Major League Cup.
Two early goals from Diego Hernan Valeri and Rodney Wallace handed Timbers a perfect start after seven minutes before Kei Kamara pulled one back for Columbus but it wasn’t enough to deny Kwarasey’s club their first ever league title.
“It’s just amazing. I can’t describe it right now. It’s so fresh, the adrenaline is high and you see the energy in this room right now,” Kwarasey told the club’s website.
“We just played a 90-minute game. I’m sure all of the guys are tired but they’re still able to enjoy this. Unbelievable,” he added.
Kwarasey played 38 games last season. His fingertip save against Real Salt Lake in August was voted by fans as the best save of the season.
The 27-year-old has revealed his readiness to feature for Ghana once more if invited by Avram Grant after quitting in 2014.
