Fenando Adi On Target In MLS Draw

Super Eagles Striker, Fenando Adi was on target for Portland Timbers in a trilling 2-2 away draw against FC Dallas on Saturday Night.

Portland found the first goal of the match as Fanendo Adi headed in his sixth goal of the season in the 30th minute off a free kick from David Guzman to give the Timbers the 1-0 lead.

But the goal seemed to give Dallas new life. After a shaky first half, Dallas came out with renewed energy in the second half and immediately put pressure on the Timbers. Timbers goalkeeper Jeff Attinella had to come up with a point-blank save to deny Dallas midfielder Kellyn Acosta from close-range in the 58th minute. But Dallas found the equalizer anyway as former Timber Maxi Urruti got around multiple defenders and blasted a shot into the far corner of the net in the 61st minute.

The Timbers responded in the 71st minute as Sebastian Blanco sent a left-footed shot from close-range into the net to give Portland a 2-1 lead and record his first goal in a Portland uniform. The Timbers have now found goals from 10 players in nine games this year.

Despite a handful of dangerous chances from FC Dallas and some shaky defense by Portland, the Timbers remained in position to claim all three points until the 80th minute. That's when Hernan Grana drove to the byline and sent a cross into the box for Canadian international Tesho Akindele, who was left unmarked after Timbers defender Alvas Powell slipped in the box. Akindele easily scored to tie the game up at 2-2.
Adi is yet to play an international match for Nigeria but has been called up several times.
