Ex-Revolution forward Juan Agudelo selected by Toronto FC in MLS re-entry draft

Former New England Revolution forward Juan Agudelo was selected by Toronto FC in stage two of the MLS re-entry draft Tuesday afternoon.

The 27-year-old's option for the 2020 season had been declined by the Revolution last month, making him eligible to be picked up by another club. Toronto now owns Agudelo's rights, and it's to be determined if he'll actually play for the team next season. If he does, he'll join the very talented Jozy Altidore and could combine for a nice one-two punch up front for Toronto. 

The striker has 46 goals and 22 assists in 215 MLS regular-season appearances. He tallied three goals on 37 shots last season with the Revolution. He scored a career-high eight goals with New England in 2017.

He's being lauded for his hard work, determination, and sense of humor by New England fans across social media.

Agudelo was signed by the New York Red Bulls in 2010 to a homegrown player contract and remained with the club until 2012 before moving on to Chivas USA. He had been with the Revs since 2013. 

On top of his MLS career, he's made 28 appearances for the US National Team.

Penilla scores twice early, Revs survive Toronto FC 3-2

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Cristian Penilla scored twice in the first seven minutes and the New England Revolution held off Toronto FC 3-2 on Saturday night.

Sebastian Giovinco pulled defending MLS Cup champion Toronto within a goal on a penalty kick in the 89th minute. But before the following kick off, the Italian grabbed Wilfried Zahibo's face and was sent off for violent conduct.

Penilla opened the scoring for the Revs (5-3-2) in the fourth minute with a run up the middle of the central defense and a straightaway finish after Teal Bunbury's takeaway and feed from near midfield.

Penilla pounced on an errant pass deep in Toronto's territory and sent it quickly back at net to catch goalkeeper Alex Bono out of position in the seventh.

Bunbury made it 3-0 in the 46th minute with his fifth goal of the season, a right-footed blast into far corner.

Antonio Delamea conceded an own goal in the 55th minute to give Toronto (2-6-1) its first goal.
