Sophia Smith is cheering on the Portland Thorns from Mexico, supporting her club team while away with the USWNT for the Concacaf W Championship.
“So proud of my thornies,” Smith tweeted in celebration of the club’s thrilling 1-1 draw Friday with Angel City.
Portland’s Yazmeen Ryan nodded in a perfectly placed ball from Madison Pogarch to equalize in the final minute of stoppage time to pull level with ACFC for the final whistle.

The Thorns’ late finish canceled out Savanah McCaskill’s early penalty kick, which put Angel City up 1-0 for the majority of the match.
Friday’s draw extends Portland’s unbeaten streak to six games, putting the club one point behind league leaders San Diego in the NWSL standings.
