The African stars played for their respective teams during Saturday’s matches when the league resumed after the international break
Santiago Rodriguez scored for New York in the 11th minute with the help of Jose Gimenez, before Boateng equalized for the home side in the 21st minute, while Uganda’s Emmanuel Kizza provided the help.
Boateng and Kizza’s team won the match in the 65th minute by Tajon Buchannan, who replaced Cameroon’s Wilfrid Kaptoum a minute after the hour.
Alfredo Morales of New York received a red card in the 53rd minute after receiving a second yellow card. He got the first yellow card in the second minute of the first half.
Valentin Castellanos and Thiago were the other visitors from the visitors’ side who received yellow cards while Henry Kessler, Ryan Polste, Carles Gil and Adam Buksa received the warning in New England.
In the DRV PNK Stadium, Harrison Aful, Ghana, received a yellow card in the 10th minute when his team, Columbus Crew, lost 1-0 to Inter Miami. Gonzalo Higuain scored the only goal that separated the two teams in the 16th minute.
Apart from Aful, Lucas Zelarayan and Nova Wormngoor of Columbus Crew were warned in the 12th and 82nd minutes respectively.
In Saputo Stadium, Kenyan international Victor Wanyama played the entire match when CF Montreal lost 1-0 to Nashville SC. Walker Zimmerman scored the only goal of the away team in the 66th minute when they emerged victorious.
Uganda international Mustafa Kizza played for Zachary Brault-Guillard in the 65th minute, but his introduction did not help much as they lost at home.
Joe Willis, Harry Mukhtar and Brian Anunga of Cameroon were the players from Nashville who received yellow cards while Montreal only warned Zohran Bassong.
These were the first matches held after the end of the international break in September, where Wanyama was not involved for Kenya, while Mustafa Kizza was called up for the two Uganda qualifiers against the Harambee Stars and Mali.
Wanyama’s team – which has lost a game, drawn one and won two of the last five – will face Orlando City on September 15.
