Super Eagles of Nigeria 25 year old forward Fanendo Adi found the back of the net for Portland Timbers but his goal failed to gain them all three points as they were pegged back by LA Galaxy to end the tie at 1-1.

Adi scored in the 53rd minute to give his side the league but his fourth goal of the season from the first five games in the MLS was cancelled out by Nat Borchers of LA Galaxy with five minutes left to play in the encounter.

Prior to the game against LA Galaxy, he found the back of the net against Dallas,Columbus Crew and scored twice Real Salt Lake which earned him a call up to the Nigeria senior national team where he failed to make the match day squad in the back to back games against Egypt.

The scorer of 18 goals last season is well on course to better his record if he maintains his current scoring run in the league.
