Seattle Sounders Vs. Portland Timbers: Futty Danso Equalizes For Timbers

The Portland Timbers have been absolutely deadly on set pieces all season and just showed why, once again. Mamadou Danso scored the equalizing goal in the 65th minute off a delivery from Jack Jewsbury. They are tied with the Seattle Sounders 1-1. The goal was almost an exact replay the one Danso scored against the Philadelphia Union last week and is the eighth off a set-piece for the Timbers.

On the goal, Jewsbury took the kick from about 30 yards out and delivered into the middle of the box. Danso, probably the tallest player on the field, was able to outjump everyone and beat Sounders goalkeeper Kasey Keller to the ball.

Just a few minutes earlier, Sal Zizzo had entered for Darlington Nagbe. The No. 2 overall SuperDraft pick had looked strong during the first half, displaying some clever moves to create a couple scoring chances against the Seattle Sounders. Nagbe has failed to go more than 82 minutes in any match this year and was making just his third start.
