Columbus Crew's Schulte, Rossi & Cheberko on Champions Cup Best XI


Three Columbus Crew players have made the 2024 Concacaf Champions Cup Best XI: goalkeeper Patrick Schulte, defender Yevhen Cheberko and winger Diego Rossi.

While the Crew lost 3-0 to Pachuca in Saturday's final, the MLS Cup 2023 champions made history by eliminating Liga MX powerhouses CF Monterrey (semifinals) and Tigres UANL (quarterfinals) in Mexico.

  • Patrick Schulte: Schulte won the CCC's Best Goalkeeper Award, memorably coming up clutch in the penalty shootout at Tigres in Leg 2 of their quarterfinal series.
  • Yevhen Cheberko: The Ukranian center back helped Columbus reach their first CCC final, making 10 steals and 11 clearances.
  • Diego Rossi: Rossi was the Crew's game-changer in the final third, scoring three times – including one in each leg against Tigres.
