that was downright filthy

i would not care less if i saw people putting agudelo in NT starting 11... obviously has to look good trough spring but all indications are that he will

JK has to seriously consider getting agudelo involved in a meaningful way in brazil

wondo? yeah, not so much

Agreed. I hope JK sees that.

Favoring Juan over Wondo based on this performance is a silly argument, they're two very different strikers each with his own style. Wondo is going to be a "fox in the box" and can pounce on almost anything within his reach. Juan is more slippery and can create for himself with his speed and footwork.

The question as to who to bring to Brazil is one of utility: Which is going to better fit in to our overall plans for the way that we want to play?

Wondo is still over agudelo. But if wondo slows down this season and agudelo gets hot he will take his spot in Brazil. I think klissman should take agudelo over aging wondo because we all know wondo might not play, and agudelo will get expwrience for 2018.

Agudelo showed well today. He actually takes players on which can't be said for a lot of our guys.

Yeah I enjoyed what I saw from him. Tough result, could have had maybe one or two more, but still a very impressive showing. looking forward to more goals.

I've favored Juan over Wondo since the beginning of time. Ive seen Agudelo poach against Argentina and make a play out of nothing against Russia (Agudelo took a aimless ball from Edu and was able to purposely set Bradley up for a screamer of a goal) I've watched Agudelo make Chivas USA credible and watched him immediately improve the Revs once he got there. Agudelo steps up to the occasion no matter where he goes. This shouldnt even be a debate.

I would take Agudelo over Wondo any day of the week. I have nothing against Wondo who I think has talent, but Juan is just plain better.

Juan gives the USMNT attack much better dynamic play. Altidore, Johannsson, and Juan are good varied mix of strikers. To be honest Juan's aerial abilities rival EJ's, and Juan's hold up play is just as good if not better than Ej's.

I won't be surprised if Agudelo is on the plane to Brasil. Just a much more dynamic striker than the other fringe strikers i.e. Boyd, EJ, and Wondo. And yes I think Klinsmann only brings three strikers.

I've also put Juan over Wondo pretty much forever, but the propensity of some people to jump to conclusions placing one player over another based on a single game is more to what I was commentating on.

I agree, Juan likes a challenge and seems to be able to leap any hurdle in front of him without much effort, and will be a great asset for the Nats in the future. Whether or not he'd be able to be an impact player on the world stage in Brazil is a different story.

To summarize, I'd take Juan over Wondo but no more than I did before reading how well he did today.
