Ghana defender Lalas Abubakar scored his debut MLS goal in Columbus Crew's 1-1 draw at Orlando City on Saturday.

The youngster opened the scoring in the 35th minute but Jamaican Giles Barnes levelled the scoring for the home side.

Abubakar signed this season as a draft pick has come on in leaps and bounce for the Crew.

It was also his first league goal for the Black and Gold.
