The Brian Fernandez era is upon us.
“He is eligible for this game,” head coach Gio Savarese told reporters. “If he’s traveling, I’m pretty sure we’re going to see something from him.”
The 24-year-old Fernandez had 18 goals and five assists across 32 appearances with Necaxa in Liga MX before joining Portland. The Argentinian signed officially on May 6, which wasn't in time for the paperwork to clear to make his debut on Friday against the Vancouver Whitecaps.
The Timbers lost 1-0, where they could have used his attacking spark. Will they get it against the Dynamo?
