Fagundez becomes the youngest player to score 25 MLS goals

...and he did it by scoring a beauty.

Diego Fagundez has been in MLS so long that it's sometimes easy to forget how young he is. On Saturday we got a reminder when the 20-year-old became the youngest player to score 25 MLS goals.

The tally came in the 51st minute of Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Union when Chris Tierney took a quick throw-in that found Charlie Davies. Davies proceeded to play a smart ball to Fagundez, who took his space before firing in a low-range blast. It was a beautiful strike that allowed the Massachusetts native to etch his name in the record book.

The previous record holder was Eddie Gaven, who accomplishment the feat in 20 years, 164 days. Fagundez beat Gaven by 45 days.

Fagundez was ultimately removed in the 64th minute, making way for Teal Bunbury. As he exited the field, he received plenty of praise from the Revolution commentators.

Fagundez now has three goals and three assists on the season.
