CAPE TOWN, South Africa — Juan Agudelo became the youngest U.S. player to score in the modern era, giving the Americans a 1-0 victory over South Africa on Wednesday that allowed them to avoid finishing the year with a losing record.
Agudelo, who turns 18 next Tuesday, scored in the 85th minute of his debut after coming on as a substitute midway through the second half.
Real Salt Lake's Robbie Findley started as the lone striker, while defender Nat Borchers was a second-half substitute.
