Highlights: Pa Modou Kah
New Portland Timbers defender Pa Modou Kah is a long time veteran of Roda JC in the Dutch Eredivisie who most recently played in Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. Here's a collection of some of his best moments from the past 2012/2013 season while with Al-Wehda FC of the Saudi Arabian first division during the 2012-13 season. The clip shows some great closing speed as well as strong positioning, physical tackling ability and solid ball distribution from out of the backline:

The new Timbers center back looks to provide increased depth to a Portland backline hit with injuries.
