MOST COMMENTED

For 19-year-old Juan Agudelo, his first appearance for Chivas USA was by no means was a dream debut, reports Marc Serber, but he did get the start on the frontline, improved as the game went on, and helped his new team to a 1-0 win over the Los Angeles Galaxy.

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.”
