Juan Agudelo scores first European goal, nets in third game with Utrecht

Juan Agudelo is officially on the board in Europe.

Agudelo, playing in his third game (second start) since being loaned to FC Utrecht from Stoke City, opened his account with the Eredivisie club, scoring in the 24th minute of the club's 2-1 loss to PEC Zwolle on Thursday. Agudelo pounced on a deflection in the box, turned beautifully and struck a high, right-footed rocket under the crossbar to open the scoring and join Aron Johannsson as U.S. goalscorers in the Netherlands this season.

Agudelo celebrated the goal -- his first since an Oct. 27 strike for the New England Revolution -- with a samba dance in front of the Utrecht fans. Think he has an eye on Brazil?
