The Portland Timbers host AFC Ajax, one of the most storied teams in Europe, tonight at Jeld-Wen Field. Kick off is at 7pm.
Most of the roster of the team that just won their 30th Dutch league title are making the trip, including top scorers Miralem Sulejmani and Siem de Jong. Both Ajax and the Timbers, no doubt, will substitute liberally – should be an entertaining match and a chance to see some of the up-and-comers from both teams.
