Portland Timbers – Minnesota United FC highlights

Check out Wes Burdine’s recap for a more in-depth look at the match. Andy Greder of Pioneer Press also wrote a recap and provided quotes from Adrian Heath.

False alarm

Joshua Gatt was listed as a sub for the Loons’ preseason match against Portland. However, the winger was not on the bench as he has not officially joined the team. When Gatt was listed as a midfielder along with Tanner Thompson and Raul Gonzalez before the match, expectations were raised, but the Gatt’s inclusion proved to be a mistake. The former Molde FK player is still expected to join Minnesota in the near future.

Kit reveal event

Minnesota United will be hosting a kit reveal at the Machine Shop in Minneapolis this Friday at 7:00 p.m. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. In order to attend you will have to RSVP for the event.
