Juan Agudelo says he scored on Saturday

The record book says own goal though.

MLS: D.C. United at New England Revolution Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

One of Saturday’s biggest mysteries is who scored the New England Revolution’s second goal.

The play in question began with Kelyn Rowe floating in a corner that found the head of Antonio Delamea. The defender puts the ball back into the area where Juan Agudelo and Sean Franklin are battling. Camera angles make it difficult to determine who gets the last touch, but the final product is a Revolution goal.

Agudelo took credit for the tally after the game, 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.’”

Agudelo made a second claim of ownership on Twitter, this time using video evidence provided by’s Matt Doyle.

Now three days removed from the game, Opta hasn’t changed the official stats, as it still reads own goal.

So, who do you think got the last touch: Agudelo or Franklin? Let us know by voting in the poll or leaving a comment below.
