Diego Fagundez got the New England Revolution’s season off on the right foot with his right foot.
In the Revs’ season-opener against the Houston Dynamo on Sunday, Fagundez scored a goal in the third minute, and put the Revs up, 1-0.
On the scoring play, Revs defender Jose Goncalves lobbed the ball into Houston’s half, and Dynamo defender Jalil Anibaba accidently volleyed the ball to Fagundez just outside of the box. The Revs striker controlled the ball and shot it from range.
Watch the movement on his strike.
The 21-year-old played 30 games and started 19 for the Revolution during the 2015 season. Fagundez, a Leominster, Mass. native, has scored 29 goals in his six seasons with the Revolution.
