VIDEO: Watch Harrison Afful's sublime match winner in the US Open Cup
Harrison Afful's extra-time winner sent Charlotte FC through to the next stage.

Defender Harrison Afful scored a purified extra-time winner for Charlotte FC in their 2-1 success  over USL League One side Greenville Triumph in the US Open Cup match on Wednesday night.

The right-back was making his first start for the Major League Soccer side he joined this season after leaving Columbus Crew and his first goal for the club.

Charlotte FC scored the opener in the 39th minute Adam Armour's cheeky backheel shot which forced a save from the keeper and the rebound landed for Titi Ortiz to bury home.

But Greenville Triumph snatched the equalizer after 59 minutes with an excellent strike from striker Jake Keegan.

In the 106th minute, Afful received a wall pass from  new signing Kamil Jóźwiak and the Ghana defender curled it past the goalkeeper for the match winner.
