PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland Timbers are back in action at JELD-WEN Field on Wednesday night with an exhibition match against Norwich City FC of the English Premier League.

Norwich City, nicknamed the Canaries, finished 11th in the Premier League last season.

Managed by Chris Houghton, Norwich City is led by midfielders Wesley Hoolahan and Anthony Pilkington. They have a back line featuring Michael Turner, Sebastian Bassong and Javier Garrido.

This summer, they've added forward Ricky Van Wolfswinkel, midfielder Leroy Fer and winger Nathan Redmond.

The match against the Timbers is part of Norwich's North American preseason tour. They've already played the San Jose Earthquakes, and lost 1-0.

The Timbers are coming off a 0-0 draw with the Philadelphia Union and will travel to San Jose on Saturday for a showdown with the Earthquakes.

Tickets are still available for Wednesday night's match. Kickoff is at 8 p.m.
