We now definitively know who scored the New England Revolution’s second goal against D.C. United.
The goal in question occurred in 48th minute after Kelyn Rowe sent in a corner that was nodded across the goalmouth by Antonio Delamea. Juan Agudelo and Sean Franklin fought over the loose ball, with it ultimately ending in the back of the net. The goal, which was the game’s equalizer, was initially deemed an own goal.
Agudelo later claimed it for himself, saying, “I got a touch on it. It was all [Delamea’s] work though, so I looked at him and instinctively I just said, ‘It was basically your goal. All I had to do was tap it in.’”
Turns out that Agudelo was correct, as Opta officially changed the score sheet on Tuesday.
The #NERevs' @JuanAgudelo has officially been awarded the goal that was originally ruled an own goal on Sean Franklin in #NEvDC last week.— Charles Boehm (@cboehm) April 25, 2017
This puts Agudelo at four goals on the year, tying him with Lee Nguyen for most on the Revolution. It also gives Delamea his first MLS assist, which he certainly deserves.
Shout out to this all-star @antonio_delamea for (now officially) getting his first MLS assist last Saturday.— AGUDELO (@JuanAgudelo) April 25, 2017
