Revolution forward Juan Agudelo underwent surgery on Friday for a minor facial injury suffered during last week’s U.S. match against Jamaica.

Agudelo suffered a small facial bone fracture during the first half of the match, but fought through it to play the full 90. He is expected to resume training when the club returns to Arizona next week for the Desert Diamond Cup.

The 23-year-old forward was called into U.S. camp last month, and saw action in friendlies against Serbia and Jamaica.

Agudelo is coming off a 2016 campaign in which he scored seven goals, a team-high shared with Kei Kamara. The U.S. international also collected a career-high five assists last season.

    Chelsea, the top EPL team, is using a formation which is very close to the old WM of the 1950’s and early 60’s, especially with the use of the pure wingers, the three backs, and the two defensive midfielders. It was the only one I played in all through high school and college.

    Maybe the Revs should use it, but, then again, any formation with Ngolo Kante involved would probably be a success. He is a terrific ball-winner who is playing an important role in Chelsea’s turnaround, even though he is not the sophisticated passer or goal scorer many, if not most, coaches look for. Getting him for 30 million pounds was a bargain for Chelsea.
