Together at Last: Timbers Reunite the Chara Brothers
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Diego and Yimmi Chara both started for the Portland Timbers in the team's season opener, becoming the 15th set of brothers to take the field together for the same MLS team. The brothers from Colombia hadn't played together for more than a decade until that moment. Diego Chara has been with the Timbers since the team's first season, while younger brother Yimmi signed with the team in January. They're the fourth set of brothers to play for the Timbers across all eras.
