On a day in which the Timbers' performance was not quite complete and fortune finally turned in the Timbers' favor, the most important takeaway was the three points. And after a week in which there was palpable concern in the Rose City about the red line starting to get away, the Timbers now sit only three points beneath the playoff-qualification line with 20 games yet to play.

The Portland Timbers scored first and scored last as they got back to winning ways today with a 4-2 win over their Cascadia rivals, the Vancouver Whitecaps.

The Timbers have made a habit of scoring early in recent matches and this one was no different. After some high pressure in the 4th minute caused the Whitecaps to cough up the ball, the Timbers looked to find Jack McInerney on the run through the Vancouver box.

This year's edition of the Copa America will feature teams from North and South America and will run from June 3rd to June 26th, although the US have already started their pre-tournament camp and friendlies.

Stumptown Preview: What Fanendo Adi means to the Portland Timbers

Stumptown Footy at related • 0 views

33 goals in 69 appearances. 26 goals since the start of the 2015 season. Fanendo Adi has consistently been one of the best forwards in the MLS since his arrival in 2014. The young Nigerian fits in so well with the surrounding pieces; offering a large target for the skill players like Darlington Nagbe and Diego Valeri to find and combine with, while also offering wingers like the Rodney Wallace of old and the Lucas Melano of new a target on their whipped in crosses.
