Agudelo shows off genius

[VIDEO PICK: Goal of the Day] Juan Agudelo showed why he is still one of the USA's top young prospects, scoring on a backheel he lobbed over Chicago Fire goalie Sean Johnson in his first game back for the New England Revolution after a two-month injury absence.

Agudelo 's goal came in the 54th minute of a 2-0 New England win. He took a pass from midfielder Chris Tierney that bounced on the Gillette Stadium turf, and the 20-year-old forward flicked the ball over the charging Johnson and over the goal line before Fire defender Bakary Soumare was able to clear the ball.

Agudelo's goal was his fourth goal in six matches with New England since being acquired from Chivas USA in May. He recently signed a pre-contract with Stoke City to join the English Premier League club in January.

    Another marginal performance by the ref in the Chic v Ne game; he's either blind or totally incompetent, as are his ARs.
