Columbus's last triumph had come in 2020, in full Covid

The MLS Cup 2023 è of the Crew. In the final played at the splendid Field facility, Columbus è managed to take home victory and trophy, overcoming Los Angeles FC with the final result of 2-1. Crew goal, on a penalty kick, by Hernandez. Double by the hosts with Yeboah. Late 2-1 signed by Bouanga.

For Columbus this is the third title in its history after ones in 2008 and 2020 (the latter in full Covid). The Crew reached the final after defeating Atlanta United, two games to one, in the first round, and after wins on the road against Orlando City (2-0) and Cincinnati (3-2). "Victory? I am very proud of it because thereè thereè so much work behind", the words of the Columbus Nancy coach to ESPN.

Lots of bitterness in the Los Angeles FC household. In particular, for Chiellini. The former Juventus defender è took the field as a starter in what may have been his last game as a professional footballer. Maximum commitment for the Blue but, this time, the victory è went to the opponents. At 39, he seems now ready for management roles, obviously always in soccer.
