Agudelo cut from US MNT

Juan Agudelo has been trimmed from the USMNT roster in Orlando. Steve Davis of prosoccertalk.com cites Agudelo's removal due more to recovery and lack of playing time: Agudelo was a victim of injury, to some extent. Hurt back in the Olympic qualifying effort in late March, he returned to the field just two weeks ago. That’s hardly enough time to get into the kind of international-level shape that Klinsmann has stressed. Either way, this will give Agudelo a chance to get fit and get established at his new club address, Chivas USA. No word yet if Agudelo will be in the lineup this weekend. But regardless, barring injury it looks like Agudelo will be with Chivas this summer. Klinsmann is excited about Agudelo's prospects about the recent trade: "We have Juan Agudelo coming in after a difficult first part of the season for him, not qualifying for the Olympics (with the U23s), struggling with an injury, and now with the trade to Chivas USA that we hope gives him a lift because he couldn’t pass by Thierry Henry and Kenny Cooper at the Red Bulls ...He has an opportunity now, and we want him to grab it and make clear to everyone that he deserves to be a starter no matter where he plays."
