Nigerian striker Fanendo Adi has praised his Portland Timbers strike partner Diego Valeri for the assist from which he scored the opening goal in a 2-1 win over FC Toronto.
It was Adi’s seventh goal this season and he is now joint leading scorer in the MLS.
“He makes things very easy for me. I told him after the game that he could have scored that first goal and he told me that I opened up very well, so he passed it to me. He’s an amazing guy and we respect everything he does out there," Adi disclosed.
Last season, the 25-year-old Nigerian striker fired 18 goals to help Portland Timbers clinch the MLS championship.
