Diego Fagundez Scores Against Chicago, Celebrates With Gillette Minutemen

Diego Fagundez scored his first goal since May in the first half against Chicago tonight. His celebration might be better than any bit of actual play for the rest of this match.

Diego Fagundez hasn't had a good summer. He hasn't scored for the New England Revolution since May, and even found himself out of the starting XI in the last few weeks, something that would have been inconceivable just a year ago. He got the start tonight (Saturday) though, assuming his favored wing position against the Chicago Fire.

In the 41st minute, he rewarded the faith showed by Jay Heaps with a goal. The play itself was pure hustle and skill: Jose Goncalves chased down a wayward cross off a corner, saving it from going out of bounds, before chipping it into the path of Lee Nguyen, who reached the byline and crossed far-post for Fagundez, who headed in from nearly point-blank range.

The celebration was, simply put, pure swag and class.

There have been a few goals this year, and there have been a few celebrations. This one, though, might be the best of the bunch. I hope his ears are okay, though.
