Nigerian striker Fanendo Adi became Portland Timbers’ all-time leading goalscorer on Sunday when he struck his 46th career goal for the club in their 3-1 Major League Soccer win at Philadelphia Union.
Adi secured maximum points for the Timbers from the penalty spot, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way in the 88th minute. It was his fifth goal of the season after goals from Darlington Nagbe and Roy Miller had cancelled out Richie Marquez 26th minute opener for the hosts.
The 26-year-old Adi strike saw him become the Timbers’ all-time leading goalscorer, passing Timbers legend John Bain on 45. The win took the Timbers clear on top of the Western Conference with 13 points from six MLS games.
