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 MLSSoccer.com’s Matt Doyle.
Definitely got a touch on it. This angle shows (my) black cleat tap it in. Defender and friend Sean Franklin wears Bright White cleats @MLS https://t.co/GB1zZg5a4F— AGUDELO (@JuanAgudelo) April 23, 2017
Now three days removed from the game, Opta hasn’t changed the official stats, as it still reads own goal.
