Juan Agudelo, who is age-eligible for the U-20s, came on in the second half and pounced on a rebound of a header from Carlos Bocanegra in the 59th minute. The crowd in the meal room cheered when the 18-year-old scored his second goal in just 106 minutes with the full MNT. In fact, a couple guys even saw it coming. U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard was at his finest, holding Argentina to just a single goal in the 1-1 tie.
The U-20s were inspired by their MNT heroes, and the coaching staff jumped in with some good coaching points - managing the game, looking at the formation of both teams - things like that to help the younger guys think about things about like that while their watching two pretty good teams go at it.
