MLS team makes child’s wish come true

How would you like to score a game-winning goal in front of thousands of fans?

An estimated 3,000 people were in attendance as the Portland Timbers faced off against the Green Machine.

The Timbers, as you may know, play in the MLS. The Green Machine, on the other hand, are an eight-year-old child’s club.

We’ll explain.

Atticus Lane-Dupre has cancer and, as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, wanted to play against his favorite team.

So he and his teammates did just that, with the final score being 10-9 Green Machine. And we’ll let you guess who scored the winning goal.
