Revolution midfielder Diego Fagundez, from Uruguay, has gained permanent resident status from the U.S. government and will count as a domestic player on the Revs roster.
 
The Revs now have five international players on the roster: Jerry Bengtson (Honduras), Jose Goncalves (Portugal), Dimitry Imbongo (Congo), Saer Sene (France) and O’Brian Woodbine (Jamaica).
 
Fagundez -- a Homegrown player from Leominster, Mass. who played for Revolution Academy youth teams -- is now the Revolution’s leading scorer. He has 13 goals this year and is tied for fifth in the league in scoring. At 18, he is the youngest-ever MLS player to score 10 or more goals in a season, and is the league’s all-time leading teenage goal-scorer.
 
Fagundez was recently named team MVP for 2013, becoming the youngest team MVP in club history.
