New York Red Bulls forward Juan Agudelo has been named by head
coach Thomas Rongen to the U20 USMNT side that will participate in the Torneo
de las Americas in Kennesaw, Ga.,
from Nov. 21-29. The U.S.
will face Colombia on Nov.
26 and Mexico
on Nov. 28 in the three-team round robin tournament held at the Kennesaw State
Soccer Stadium. 

Agudelo, a Home Grown signing out of the New York Red Bull
Academy, became the fourth youngest player in MLS history to start a playoff
match when he was paired with Juan Pablo Angel in the away leg of New York’s
Eastern Conference Semifinal series with San Jose Earthquakes, and became the
youngest New York player to record a playoff assist when his cross was nodded
home by Angel in the home leg against the Quakes.

The Barnegat, N.J. native is one of seven MLS players to be
named to the team.
