Agudelo won an aerial battle with Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Perk to set up the Jose Correa shot that was handled by defender David Junior Lopes for the game-winning penalty kick.

“What they [the coaching staff] want out of me is exactly what I was looking for. Freedom," Agudelo said. "They told me to play with a smile on my face and that just sets me off. ...

“It’s a different playing style, a different team. I just think over time it will get better and better with me finding those pockets of space and getting used to the way other players play so that I know where I should be when I receive the ball.”
