Led by coach Wilfried Nancy, the Crew players are determined to make a mark not only in the Concacaf Champions Cup but in all competitions they compete in. With stars like Cucho Hernández and Darlington Nagbe in the squad, the Crew has demonstrated a unique blend of technical skill and determination that could lead the team to glory once again.
