Nigeria forward Fanendo Adi bagged his 15th league goal of the season for Major League Soccer side, Portland Timbers, as they beat Philadephia Union 2-1 at the Providence Park on Sunday morning, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The goal makes him the 16th player in the history of the MLS to tally 15 goals in consecutive seasons.
Adi scored Portland’s second of the game in the 53rd minute of the encounter to continue his recent fine run in front of goal.
The former Ukraine-based striker was also on song in his side’s CONCACAF Champions League 4-2 defeat to Costa Rican side, Deportivo Saprissa in midweek.
The big striker has now scored five goals in his last six appearances for Portland.
He has also hit the back of the net in his side’s last four home fixtures.
Last season, he scored 18 goals to help Portland win a historic MLS Cup title and is now in line to surpass the goal tally this term.
