Super Falcons forward Uchenna Kanu scored the fastest brace in the history of the National Women’s Soccer League as Racing Louisville were held to a 2-2 draw by Portland Timbers.

Kanu opened the scoring for Racing with just three minutes on the clock. The striker nodded home Reilyn Turner’s cross to make it 2-0 three minutes later. But Portland Timbers rallied to equalise through Morgan Weaver and Samantha Coffey.

The Nigerian expressed her delight after the game.
“First of all, I’m excited that I got two goals and I didn’t even know I made history today, and I’m super, super thankful for that,” Kanu told reporters.
“And of course, I’m proud of my girls. I think we played really well. That last minute was really, really intense for us, and we just need to find a way to grind through the whole game, through the last minute—but overall, the girls put in everything today.”
