It’s the third match for the Portland Timbers in the Mobile Mini Sun Cup, this time facing the local-ish side, Phoenix Rising at 5 p.m. PST. Like previous matches in the tournament, you can find it be streamed on the Timbers website, as well as Youtube.
Last year’s USL Conference Champions are one of ten clubs vying for a spot in MLS and means business having constructed an ownership group that include former Montreal Impact great Didier Drogba (who also fared well at Chelsea and the Ivory Coast national team)
It’s been reported that the Timbers attempts to land a striker were for naught. But they didn’t leave the transfer market empty handed; the other area of need President of Soccer Gavin Wilkinson laid out was at right back. The Timber announced today the acquisition of Paraguayan Jorge Moreira. The team is still waiting on the International Transfer Certificate and a P-1 visa for the new right back.
It’s penultimate match for Portland in the Mobile Mini Sun Cup. They’ll wrap up preseason play against Real Salt Lake on Saturday, February 23 a week before the Portland’s March 2nd season-opener away at the Colorado Rapids.
