Ghanaian and Minnesota striker Abu Danladi scored and was red carded in his side's 3-2 win over Portland Timbers 3-2 on Wednesday night.

The 21-year-old forward broke a tie in the 64th minute to help Minnesota United beat Portland  to snap two-game losing and scoreless streaks.

Danladi scored for the second time this season after 12 games, handling a ricochet off goalkeeper Jake Gleeson to score from 10 yards.

Minnesota (5-9-2) improved to 5-3 at home, scoring for the first time since a 1-0 victory over Orlando City on May 27. The Timbers (7-7-3) have lost two straight in MLS play, both on the road.

Minnesota’s Amobi Okugo opened the scoring in the seventh minute, and Diego Valeri tied it on a penalty kick in the 37th.

Christian Ramirez restored Minnesota’s lead in the 47th, and Francisco Calvo tied it in the 50th minute.
