Fanendo Adi scores first Columbus Crew goal vs San Jose Earthquakes

Fanendo Adi got his maiden goal for Columbus Crew in Tuesday’s 4-1 pre-season win over San Jose Earthquakes.

The forward scored a 30th minute goal as the Crew breezed past the Goonies in the warm-up game played in Cancun, Mexico.

The tie which featured four 30-minute periods saw the ex-Nigeria U23 man score first before Pedro Santos, Jordan Hamilton and Derrick Etienne Jr. completed the rout as Caleb Porter’s men continued their build up to next season’s Major League Soccer outing.

After been waived by FC Cincinnati owing to an injury-plagued campaign last season, Adi reunited with his former Portland Timbers boss Porter - under whom he won the 2015 MLS Cup.
