Player Spotlight: Diego Fagundez far from joining U.S. national team


As reigning MLS MVP Mike Magee prepared to walk out of the elevator at a recent MLS media event, he was halted by a precocious teenager who couldn't quite wait for the people getting off the elevator to exit. No, Diego Fagundez just jumped right in, as most teenagers might who are oblivious to elevator etiquette.

The incident brought a smile to Magee's face. Having been a teenager in MLS a decade ago, he surely knows that Fagundez is simply living as a teen - waiting for nobody, in a hurry to enjoy a life and career just beginning to blossom.

Fagundez is the 19-year-old goal-scoring sensation who emerged last year to post the most productive season in the history of MLS for a teenager. His 13 goals and seven assists helped transform New England from a club that hadn't made the playoffs in years to one of the more exciting attacking outfits in MLS.
