Rose City, we have some more soccer ahead of us. Portland Thorns FC is back at it with their match against Kansas City NWSL. The last time these two teams met up Portland, Portland earned a 2-1 victory, and that was before the Thorns were at full strength. The thought of what this Thorns squad can do if they’re at full strength is very intriguing.
Portland went into the international break on a high note, taking down Racing Louisville FC 3-0 (Grant Little wrote about just how awesome Lindsey Horan was, which you can read here). The expectation for this Thorns club right now is that just about every match should go that way with just how talented they are. What it’ll mostly come down to is whether or not they consistently finish all the chances they create. If they don’t, then this game could be close. If they do ... well, let’s just say good luck and Godspeed Kansas City.
