The MLS is Back Tournament has its first goal.
Inter Miami forward Juan Agudelo made good on a first-half miss, turning home from six yards to give the expansion club a 1-0 lead in the 47th minute over Orlando City on Wednesday night. Agudelo peeled off a defender’s shoulder at the back post, one-timing a low cross from midfielder Victor Ulloa across the face of goal.
The goal marked Agudelo’s first goal for Miami since being acquired this past offseason via trade, having spent the last five years with the New England Revolution.
Agudelo, who awaits a bigger role after No. 1 SuperDraft pick Robbie Robinson withdrew from the tournament due to personal reasons, got the start at center forward over Julian Carranza. He made amends, too, after missing a left-footed sitter in the 9th minute after Pellegrini crossed from the left.
