Montreal Impact striker, Didier Drogba, led the resilient attack of the team that forced a draw with Columbus Crew SC despite their lead.

The draw sent Montreal Impact to the top of the table. Columbus were sitting pretty while holding a three-goal lead early in the second half at MAPFRE Stadium but the Montreal Impact mounted an impressive comeback to grab a share of the points in an improbable 4-4 draw.

Kei Kamara scored the first in the 16th minute for Columbus but the Ex-Chelsea centre forward assisted Ignacio Piatti as he equalized for Impact ten minutes later. Before the first half ended, Kei Kamara scored in the extra minutes sending the hosts into wild jubilation.

The second half started with the 2-1 score line but changed very quickly in the 48th minute when Federico Higuain (Napoli’s Higuain elder brother) scored his first of the game. The goal increased the lead for the hosts and nobody would have expected what happened next as all was well for a deserved victory.

In the 53rd minute, Crew SC won a penalty and Federico Higuain took the kick and converted but there were arguments as Federico Higuain didn’t allow Kei Kamara score his first career hat-trick. Same Kamara had been confirmed to be traded by MLSSoccer before Wednesday’s MLS trade deadline.

Manager Gregg Berhalter admitted at Tuesday’s training session that there’s plenty of interest as Wednesday’s MLS trade deadline approaches. He said:

“I won’t get into any specifics. But there’s been teams that have reached out to us. I think that’s normal, given that type of story and that type of profile player and what impact he can have in this league.”

The “type of story” Berhalter referenced was Kamara blasting teammate Federico Higuain after the Argentinian playmaker as he took a penalty kick. Kamara responded by calling Higuain “selfish” and saying he doesn’t “depend on him for anything,” suggesting his No. 10 doesn’t provide him enough assists.

Impact won their own penalty which Drogba converted, then Ignacio Piatti and Dominic Oduro scored in the 58th and 93rd minute to seal the draw for Impact.
