Juan Agudelo scored his first goal of 2015, and it was a beauty.

Heading into this weekend's game against the Colorado Rapids, there was some concern among fans about Juan Agudelo. The striker had shown flashes since rejoining the New England Revolution but he hadn't been able to produce the final product.

That all changed on Saturday.

In the 18th minute, Kelyn Rowe sent in a picturesque, diagonal cross. From there, a deft touch by Agudelo was all that was needed to put the ball past goalkeeper Clint Irwin. It's a goal to behold.

The tally was Agudelo's first in Revolution colors since Oct. 27, 2013. That night he had the lone score against the Columbus Crew, helping the Revs make the playoffs.

Agudelo's most recent goal brings back memories of the beautiful backheel flick he had against the Chicago Fire on Aug. 17, 2013. They both serve as prime examples of the unique skill set that Agudelo brings to the team. At any given moment, Agudelo can provide a moment of magic. The player himself calls it "swagger."
