Ghana defender and Columbus Crew captain Jonathan Mensah and his teammates Gyasi Zardes have been named in the best eleven of the CONCACAF Champions League round of 16.

Mensah played a key role as the Major League Champions progressed to the quarter-finals of the Champions League after thrashing Real Esteli.

He scored as the Gold and Blacks secured a 4-0 first-leg win before crowning the two-legged tie with a 1-0 victory. Columbus Crew reached the quarterfinals with a 5-0 aggregate win

The duo were part of eight MLS-based players who dominated the side with only three Liga MX players (Mexico's top-flight league) completing the lineup.

Columbus Crew will next face Mexican outfit C.F Monterrey in the quarter-final on Thursday 29 April 2021.
