The Premier League Insider would like to congratulate the Portland Timbers and Aston Villa for a superb match at Jeld Wen Field in Portland, Oregon. While the match resulted in a draw, it was exciting to see an MLS and a Premier League club play like if it was the World Cup.
Sebastian Rincon and Rodney Wallace of the Portland Timbers as well as Ciaran Clark and Matthew Lowton deserve Most Valued Player of the match. The reason is secondary to their methods of scoring goals.
The supporters as well as those who love football also win since these matches further consolidate football in America. Aston Villa is now in the process of closing its tour of America and going back to England.
Later on, the MLS All Stars will face Chelsea. This weekend is the historical event of the century in Miami Florida when Chelsea FC faces AC Milan at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Florida.
