The US Open Cup is back and this time the Portland Timbers are hosting the LA Galaxy as they look to advance to the quarterfinals.
Lineup Preview: “The wildcard for the midfield and attack, however, is Darlington Nagbe. The Timbers’ talisman has been away with the United States Men’s National Team for the Copa America and should be fresh after being gifted only minimal playing time by Jurgen Klinsmann in the US’s fourth place effort.”
Kevin on Keepers: “ Going back to the beginning of the season, Hamilton is more akin to Kwarasey than Gleeson in his keeping skills. In shot stopping and distribution he reminds me much more of Kwarasey than Gleeson. But he is still very rough and requires a lot more minutes to develop.”
