Red Bulls forward Juan Agudelo has been called up to the United States Under-20 National Team for its upcoming trip to Peru for a four team international tournament from Sept. 1 through Sept. 13. He will be unavailable for selection for the Red Bulls’ matches on Sept. 4 at Real Salt Lake and Sept. 11 vs. Colorado. 

Agudelo was signed by the Red Bulls on March 26 from the Red Bull Academy, becoming the second Home Grown player produced by the club to join the first team. This season for the Red Bulls, Agudelo started three games in the U.S. Open Cup, and has featured in the team’s 18 man matchday roster on three occasions, but has yet to appear in a regular season game.

The U.S. U-20’s will play against Paraguay on Sept. 6, Colombia on Sept. 8, and Peru on Sept. 10. Agudelo most recently represented the U.S. U-20’s in July at the Milk Cup in Northern Ireland. Agudelo started all three matches at the competition, and scored a goal in the United States’ 3-0 victory in the final over host Northern Ireland.
