Jeff Agoos scored one goal and assisted on another to lead the San Jose Earthquakes over the Dallas Burn, 3-0, in a Major League Soccer game Saturday night in front of 9,034 at San Jose. The victory gave San Jose (8-3-6) sole possession of the Western Conference lead. The Burn (3-10-4) remained in the Western Conference cellar. Agoos converted a penalty kick in the 90th minute after Burn defender Chris Gbandi fouled Jamil Walker in the Dallas penalty area.

Decorating the walls of his home, Jeff Agoos has the framed and mounted jerseys of some of the opponents he has come up against during his 15 years of playing soccer for the United States. There are also some of Agoos' jerseys on the walls. Such as those he wore while winning Major League Soccer championships with Washington D.C. United in 1996, 1997 and 1999. Or while winning the InterAmerica Cup with D.C. United in 1998 or playing for the FIFA World Stars in South Africa.

The moment is almost here for Jeff Agoos. Unless disaster strikes in the next 48 hours, on Wednesday the United States' oldest and second-most experienced player will step onto the field for the first time in a World Cup. It has taken him 14 years to get here. To put that in perspective, when Agoos, 34, first put on a U.S. national team jersey, World Cup teammates Landon Donovan and DaMarcus Beasley were 6 years old. To call Agoos the grand old man of U.S.

Jeff Agoos is 34, three years older than any other starter who was in the U.S. lineup against South Korea on Monday and 14 years older than either of the outside midfielders playing in front of him in the game at Daegu, South Korea, DaMarcus Beasley and Landon Donovan. That is worth mentioning, because Agoos is having the kind of World Cup that needs some explaining.
