Juan Agudelo, left, of the U.S. Men's National Team, works around Jamaica's Shavar Thomas during a Gold Cup quarterfinal match Sunday at RFK Stadium in Washington. Soccer analysts rave about the talent Agudelo displays already at age 18. Agudelo says he ‘never wanted to be average - I wanted to be more than that. Jim (Rostron, his stepfather) and my mom (Olga) made sure I was set up to do everything my ability allowed me to do, and I'll never forget that.'
Former Barnegat Township resident Juan Agudelo, 18, is excelling for the U.S. Men’s National Team. He is expected to get a lot of playing time tonight in the Gold Cup final against Mexico.
