The Round of 16 will be staged over the next week, with Portland becoming the first team to clinch a quarterfinal berth.

The Timbers got a slick team goal, complete with back heel pass, as Sebastian Blanco supplied the finishing touch in Friday’s 1-0 win over the LA Galaxy.

Portland remains alive for its first USOC final with the win, while LA will not lay claim to a third title.
