Portland Soccer Roundup: Two Weeks of Training in the Books
The Portland Timbers have finally hit the field for their first MLS training this week and there’s plenty of Timbers news, on and off the field.
Sports Illustrated's Steve Davis talks about the ten most intriguing figures in MLS. Numbers five and six are the Timbers' Darlington Nagbe and Merritt Paulson.
While on loan with Puerto Rico from Real Salt Lake last season, Timbers defender David Horst managed to shut down big forwards by the likes of Edson Buddle and Bright Dike. That experience will come up big for Horst in the future, as Timbers Insider reports.
Timbers forward Darlington Nagbe’s selection as the No. 2 overall pick in last month’s MLS SuperDraft was the pinnacle of a long journey for the Liberian-born Hermann Trophy winner.
Former USL Portland Timber Bryan Jordan, now with the LA Galaxy, finished fourth in the Super 60 race at the Millrose Games indoor track and field meet in New York this weekend. Jordan ran the 60-meter dash in 7.37 seconds, while his trash-talking partner Jacoby Jones of the Houston Texans (7.00) finished first. Video here.
