Aston Villa win pre-season friendly against Portland Timbers on penalties

 

Aston Villa needed a penalty shootout to win their pre-season friendly against Portland Timbers after the game ended in a 2-2 draw.

Villa won the shootout 5-4 in Oregon after goals from Ciaran Clark and Matthew Lowton had twice given the visitors the lead against their Major League Soccer opponents.

But Sebastian Rincon and then Rodney Wallace drew the home side level before the game was decided by penalties.
