2016 Team of the Week (Wk 12): Nagbe helps lead Timbers to Cascadia victory

The Portland Timbers put an end to a three-game losing streak Sunday as they knocked off Vancouver Whitecaps FC 4-2. Leading the way was midfielder--and recent USMNT Copa America Centenario call-up--Darlington Nagbe.

Nagbe took eight shots against the Caps--a career high that also tied a team mark--and uncorked a beautiful free kick goal that is up for MLS Goal of the Week.
