The Portland Thorns have their second match of the season today as they take on Sky Blue FC. After starting off the season with a hard fought win, the Thorns will be looking to improve on last weekend's performance and exert some control over today's proceedings.
Still without a number of the team's star players, the Thorns will look to Christine Sinclair and Nadine Angerer to propel the team forward. The rest of the team will need to step up as well with performances needed from players like Allie Long and Amber Brooks in the midfield if the Thorns are going to continue getting points early in the season.
Here is all the information that you need for today's match:
Match Preview: "In reviewing their match last weekend, Sky Blue looked no less formidable on defense as they did last season, even without team captain Christie Rampone, but their attack was sporadic, especially in the second half, when Foord was pushed back into a more defensive role as KC sustained their pressure in the attack."
