New England Revolution forward Juan Agudelo has been called up to the U.S. Men’s National Team ahead of a friendly against New Zealand on October 11 at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.

Agudelo, 23, has earned 19 caps to date and most recently suited up for the USMNT on June 10, 2015 for a friendly against Germany. Earlier that year, Agudelo appeared in a friendly against Mexico and scored his third career international goal. His first came on November 17 when he made his debut in a match against South Africa. At age 17, the striker scored the game-winner in the 85th minute.

Agudelo’s most recent call up is a reward for his solid MLS play. He has collected six goals and five assists in 22 regular-season appearances. Agudelo was sensational in the month of September, grabbing four goals and two assists in five matches across all competitions.

During his six years in MLS, Agudelo has amassed 127 appearances, scoring 31 goals with 15 assists. He has played for the New York Red Bulls (2010-12), Chivas USA (2012-13), and the New England Revolution (2013, 2015-present).
