Afful received a corner played on the ground to the edge of the area and then ripped a blast that settled just underneath the crossbar, seeming to come up on Fire keeper Sean Johnson too quickly for him to make the save.

The Ghanaian defender played it cool after scoring — for a few seconds anyway — before abruptly launching into his celebration.

The Crew need three points to have any hope of keeping their slim playoff chances alive.
