Juan Agudelo continued his magical run with the United States, scoring the equalizer in the 59th minute to make the score 1-1. The 18-year-old has now played three games in Red, White And Blue, scoring twice and drawing a penalty in the his other appearance. He entered today's game as a second-half substitute and has never played more than a half in any of his three appearances.
This goal was not necessarily a thing of beauty, but he showed a goal-scorer's instinct by being in the right place at the right time. The play started when Jozy Altidore earned the U.S. a free kick from about 40 yards out. Landon Donovan's delivery found the head of Carlos Bocanegra and while the initial shot was stopped, Agudelo was there to clean it up.
The goal came against the run of play as Argentina has continued to dominate possession and chances in the second half. Tim Howard has come up with several big saves, most recently on a close-range shot from Lionel Messi from a tight angle near the touchline.
