Fanendo Adi believes win against Galaxy will send message to rivals

19 October 2015, 18:09

California - Fanendo Adi believes Portland Timbers put in one of their best performances of the season in their 5-2 rout of LA Galaxy in Major League Soccer on Sunday.

The Timbers headed into the interval trailing their opponents 1 - 0, but Adi scored twice in the space of three minutes to put his team in the driving seat and there were further goals from Chara, Nagbe and Urruti.

With the Oregon based side needing just a point to qualify for the play-offs, Fanendo Adi reckons that the big win over the much-fancied LA Galaxy team will send a warning to their potential rivals.

''I said we are coming to win. Earlier on I had the interview, and I said we are coming to win. So we are very pleased we won, and not just won but won convincingly,'' Adi told reporters after the game at Stubhub Center in California.

''And five goals is a lot, but we are very proud of our efforts.

“Definitely, definitely; we are heating up at the right time, and this is a warning to other teams.

''We are going to enjoy this victory, it’s amazing. I am very pleased that we are all excited, and now we just have to go home and take care of business.''

Fanendo Adi is Portland Timbers top scorer in the MLS with 15 goals, and eight of those strikes came on the road.
