Red Bulls Pre-Season: Agudelo Shines

In pre-season action down in Florida, the Red Bulls defeated the U17 US Men's National Team by the score of 6-0. Yes, yes - I realize that it was a professional MLS team against 17 and 18 yr olds, but the Red Bulls were beaten 1-0 by the U17 USMNT last (2009) pre-season (a harbinger of things to come). Several players made their debuts, including Roy Miller, Tony Tchani, Joel Lindpere and Maynor Suazo, the former Honduran International who's out of contract and in for a trial.

The big story here is the superb play of Red Bulls Academy product Juan Agudelo (pictured above), a player who's currently weighing his options on where to play his professional football. Agudelo had two goals and an assist in this one. Please, Mr. Soler: Get This Kid Signed Now! Alrighty then...

Here's some post game reaction video, with comments from Coach Backe and Dane Richards, courtesy of Red Bulls Reader.
