In holding on to an aggregate lead, Columbus Crew SC managed to fend off New York Red Bulls to reach the MLS Cup Final. The sight and spirit captured in passionate abundance.
No mean feat, heading to Red Bull Arena it was the home side that were victorious on the night but the deficit of two goals was too big a mountain to scale. Regardless, both sets of fans helped create a supercharged atmosphere to fury. The passion for those devoted fans in the US is not simply mounting but it's taking to fresh heights.
The win means Columbus Crew now head into the Championship game on 6th December against the Portland Timbers. When you look at these two sides, both branded on point wearing kits of unrivaled style - it's going to be a wild affair for the cultured kings and queens of the game. The black and yellow of Columbus Crew outdid the red and white of NYRB this time out, next up is the vocal green of the Timbers. It's going to be the most styled out final in football, surely.
