Diego Fagundez only needed 90 seconds to score

Because the kid is that good.

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Sometimes you can just tell when a player is beaming with confidence. Such is the case with Diego Fagundez, who scored inside the first 90 seconds of Wednesday's game against the New York Red Bulls.

Fagundez entered the midweek affair having scored in the New England Revolution's past three games. The 20-year-old made it four straight when Juan Agudelo redirected a Lee Nguyen free kick into Fagundez's path. Fagundez made the most of the opportunity, firing a left-footed shot past goalkeeper Luis Robles.

Interestingly, all three of Fagundez's prior goals have been game winners. If this trend is to continue, the Massachusetts native will need to grab another as Mike Grella equalized for the Red Bulls in the sixth minute.

Regardless of if he scores again, Fagundez's recent hot streak can only be viewed as good news for the Revolution as the playoffs loom. The team will need all of their attackers, including Lee Nguyen, Charlie Davies, and Fagundez, firing on all cylinders.
