VANCOUVER, B.C. – Camilo Sanvezzo scored two goals, including one off a bicycle kick in the 78th minute that pulled the Vancouver Whitecaps into a wild 2-2 draw with Portland in a Cascadia Cup rivalry match Sunday night in Major League Soccer.
Sanvezzo scored in the 76th minute to tie the score at 1, but Will Johnson answered in the 77th to put the Timbers ahead.
Vancouver and Portland also tied in their previous two meetings this season.
“At the end of the day, you’ve got to congratulate Camilo on two unbelievable, world-class goals,” Portland defender Jack Jewsbury said.
