PORTLAND , Ore. (AP) — Sam Nicholson entered the game in the 67th minute and quickly made an impact.Nicholson scored the tying goal nine minutes after subbing in to help the Rapids play to a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers on Saturday night.The midfielder’s first goal of the season was a left-footed strike from the top of the box that left Timbers goalkeeper Steve Clark flat-footed. Clark, who finished with six saves, said he had an obstructed view of the goal.Article continues below ...“Incredible,” Rapids midfielder Jonathan Lewis said. “He was very good off the bench today. That goal was a wonder goal.”It came after Portland (7-3-8) took a one-goal lead in the 63rd when Diego Valeri made a penalty kick, which was the result of a Colorado hand ball.The first goal of the back-and-forth match came in the 27th minute when Rapids defender Tommy Smith scored an own goal. His header intended to clear Valeri’s corner kick went past Colorado goalkeeper Tim Howard into the back of the net.During the celebration, Timbers players rushed over and crowded around coach Gio Saverese, whose father, Carlo Savarese, died Saturday morning. They also wore matching black arm bands to honor Savarese’s late father.“I didn’t expect it, to be honest,” said Savarese, who flew to and from Italy during the week to be with his father. “It was for me a little bit emotional.“It was a weird night. But so many great things. The fans, I cannot say more. I thank them for everything they were giving me, how they were supporting me. It was incredible.”But the moment Emily Sonnett Jersey , and the celebration didn’t last long.One minute later, Lewis settled a cross deflected out by the Timbers defense in the center of the box and scored with a right-footed line drive.“I knew I had time so I just tried to stay calm,” Lewis said.It was Lewis’ first start since returning from playing with the U.S. men’s national team during the Gold Cup. The 22-year-old had scored twice in three starts before his national team call-up.Howard kept it tied with a diving one-handed effort on a shot by Sebastian Blanco two minutes later. The Rapids (5-5-10) turned a counter-attack into a 2-on-1 opportunity in the 45th, but Portland goalkeeper Clark made back-to-back saves, the second a one-handed dive blocking Kei Kamara’s header.Lewis said without Clark’s performance, the Rapids would have won.“We had chance after chance after chance and he made not easy saves. I mean, they were brilliant saves,” Lewis said. “Kudos to him, he got his team a point today.”Clark, who made his seventh start of the season, said his performance was long in the making.“I often think of goalkeeping in my game as you’re watering the soil, planting the seeds and it grows out of that,” Clark said. “I’ve been working for saves like that a long time and I put good fuel into my game, so there’s going to be more to come.”Portland played much of the second half a man down after center back Julio Cascante was given a straight red card in the 56th minute for a slide tackle from behind on Kamara.Portland sits in 10th in the Western Conference Sam Mewis Jersey , Colorado 11th. Four points separate the teams, which also played to a 3-3 draw on March 2 to open MLS regular season in Colorado. As the world’s two most expensive soccer players, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé already stand apart.On the field, they have a harmony which could take Paris Saint-Germain far in the Champions League after three straight seasons of failing to even reach the quarterfinals.Evidence of their growing understanding was fully displayed in the 5-0 home win against an albeit weak Galatasaray side in the Champions League midweek. Mbappé set up Neymar with an exquisite back-heeled pass, and Neymar returned the compliment with a defense-splitting ball to send the electrifying Mbappé through on goal. They also combined in setting up PSG’s opening goal for Mauro Icardi.“The real Neymar is back,” Le Parisien newspaper said on Thursday.But for how long? The worry for PSG is if the relationship between Neymar and Mbappé becomes rather too exclusive, to the detriment of teamwork and the exclusion of teammates. The concern is that against far better sides later in the competition, this will be too predictable and work against PSG.Of Neymar’s 57 completed passes against the Turkish side, 17 of them went to Mbappé. Hardly any went to Icardi, the other striker although much of his game is about movement off the ball to open up space for others.Before Icardi’s opening goal, which came after 32 minutes, it seemed at times as if Neymar and Mbappé were having a 2 vs. 2 kickabout on a local park, such was their tendency to pass to only each other.There is no denying that with its two biggest stars fully fit, PSG looks an ominous side.Neymar set up Mbappé’s goal last Saturday in a 3-1 win at Montpellier , where they also combined superbly for Icardi’s score. They have not played much together this season because Neymar sat out the first few games of the season as he tried to push through a move back to Barcelona, which sold him for a world record 222 million euros ($247 million) in 2017.Neymar then picked up another niggling injury while with Brazil, keeping him out for six weeks. The good news for coach Thomas Tuchel is that, after two seasons of constant injury breaks, Neymar appears close to his best once again. In the past four games he’s scored three, set up three, and been involved in starting moves for other goals.Tuchel hoped Neymar would be fully fit by January, but he’s ahead of schedule.“Ney has improved physically,” Tuchel said. “He’s accelerating more often.”This is a crucial and destructive part of Neymar’s game: Sudden bursts from midfield and pulling away from his markers over the first 10-20 meters.He does not have the speed of Mbappé, who can maintain his lightning pace for more than 50 meters without dropping off. But once Neymar does pull away then his silky skillset, and much under-rated strength, become factors that make him incredibly hard to stop in full flow.Tuchel can take further encouragement from the fact Neymar was even tracking back and trying to tackle Galatasaray players, a sign he may finally be understanding the need for better teamwork and more selflessness. Neymar, however McCall Zerboni Jersey , showed against Montpellier that he still has an irritating need to showboat and verbally provoke opponents.“He’s a bit petulant, a bit haughty with everyone,” Montpellier striker Andy Delort said. “I told him he needs to respect people. When everyone idolizes you, then you need to show the right education.”Mbappé, then 18, joined PSG from Monaco in a deal worth 180 million euros ($200 million). He netted his 100th club goal on Wednesday, one week before his 21st birthday.Mbappé was desperate for Neymar not to rejoin Barcelona.Now that he has stayed, they both need to justify their hugely costly partnership by taking PSG far in Europe.The cash-rich club has only once reached the semifinals. That was in 1995, long before the current Qatari ownership bought the club in 2011.
