    Agudelo got invited to the men national team camp also. I know this kids is progressing nicely but all this soccer is going to tried his legs out and by the time he’s in his 20’s he won’t be any good. This is the same mistake england make with their players, and I just hope agudelo keeps that humble behavior like he can’t believe its happening to him, I hope he don’t get big headed. I want him and his buddy teal to play in the u20 world cup but he shouldn’t have to go to the u20 camp, he should go to the big boy camp if they both fall in january

    i see what you saying but he is 17 and has plenty of energy. he needs this experience and it will only give him a huge advantage when he gets older and better. he is good rght now but not yet good enough to play a significant NATS game. i think the timing of the world cup is perfect though because now hell have 4 years of getting experience on the nats and playing intl. at 17 is when you soak up all your skill and he needs to play as much as possible right now.
