Fanendo Adi’s goal helped Portland Timbers to a 2-2 draw against Minnesota United in a pre-season friendly at the Providence Park on Monday.

The Timbers were at the receiving end of two first half goals from Minnesota’s Kevin Venegas. Six minutes after the interval, Jack McInerney smashed into the roof of the net to reduce the deficit.

Adi, introduced in the 58th minute, had the final say on the encounter with a beauty. With few minutes left of normal time, Sebastián Blanco released Alvas Powell down the right flank, before the wing-back crossed for the lanky striker who finished with a cheeky back heel to level things up for Caleb Porter’s men.

The goal was the former Copenhagen striker's third in the preseason tournament. And they will play the final game of the tourney against Vancouver Whitecaps on February 15.
