Juan Sebastián Agudelo (born November 23, 1992 in Manizales) is a Colombian-born American soccer player. He currently plays for New England Revolution in Major League Soccer and United States Men's National Soccer Team as a striker.
Internationally, Agudelo has represented the United States youth program at the Under-17, Under-20, and Under-23 levels. He made his debut for the senior national team against South Africa on November 17, 2010, scoring the only goal of the match.
Early life 
New York Red Bulls 
Agudelo began his career with the New York Red Bull Academy and quickly established himself as one of the more skilled prospects at the club. In 2009 he was offered a chance to join the junior team but decided to accept a trial with Colombian side Millonarios in 2010. Although it was reported that he had signed with Millonarios, he returned to the United States to join Red Bulls during their pre-season. While with Millonarios, Agudelo played with the youth side, including a match against Santa Fe C.D. on January 17, which served as a tribute match to Brazilian great Pelé.
On March 26, 2010, Agudelo officially joined the New York Red Bulls. He made his professional debut on April 27, 2010, in a U.S. Open Cup game against Philadelphia Union. Agudelo made his MLS debut against Real Salt Lake October 9, 2010, entering in the 85th minute in a match that ended in a scoreless draw. He scored his first professional goal on March 19, 2011, in the Red Bulls' 2011 MLS season opener, a 1–0 victory over Seattle Sounders FC.
As directed by US National team manager Jürgen Klinsmann, that all off-season US MLS stars should train with European clubs, on November 16, 2011, Agudelo started a two-week training period with VfB Stuttgart. On December 1, 2011, Agudelo started a similar two-week period at Liverpool.
In the start of 2012, Agudelo suffered an ankle injury, keeping him out of friendly matches 3 to 4 weeks recovering before the start of the 2012 MLS season.
Chivas USA 
Agudelo was traded to Chivas USA on May 17, 2012 in exchange for defender Heath Pearce, allocation money, and future considerations. The latter was reported to be a portion of any transfer fee that Chivas USA receives from selling Agudelo. Following the 2012 Major League Soccer season, Agudelo was invited to train with Celtic, with manager Neil Lennon planning to hold signing talks with the forward during the MLS close-season break. Following his training stint with Celtic, Agudelo joined West Ham United for a training stint also. Agudelo was named MLS player of the week after scoring and assisting one against Chicago Fire. In 2013 for Chivas USA Agudelo has two goals in four games.
New England Revolution 
Agudelo represented the United States at the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup. In 2010, he also debuted for the United States Under-20 side. On January 23, 2010, he scored the equalizing goal for the United States Under-20 national team in a 1–1 draw with Brazil. On November 11, 2010, Agudelo was called up to the United States senior national side for the first time as part of an 18-man roster for a match against South Africa on November 17 in Cape Town. He made his debut for the team coming on against South Africa in the Nelson Mandela Challenge wearing the number 17 shirt. Agudelo scored the only goal of the game on a volley that went in off the underside of the crossbar. In doing so, he became the youngest player in national team history to score in a senior game. On January 22. 2011, Agudelo drew the penalty that led to the USA's only goal of the match in a 1–1 draw against Chile. In an international friendly on March 26, 2011, he scored the equalizer in a 1–1 draw against Argentina. After he scored this goal against the Argentina national football team, he has been looked on as the next rising star for the United States.
After a rough 2012 club season, Agudelo was called up to the senior national team for the first time in a year for a friendly against Russia in which he assisted on a goal.
