If the New York Red Bulls are going to build on their first win of this season in the coming weeks, they will have to do so without Juan Agudelo.

Agudelo is scheduled to undergo surgery in New York City on Monday to repair a torn medial meniscus in his left knee. Agudelo suffered the injury in the first half of the U.S. Under-23 men's national team's 6-0 victory over Cuba in the Americans' Olympic qualifying opener last Thursday.

The 19-year-old forward's expected recovery time is six weeks.

What do you think of Agudelo having knee surgery? How do you see him returning from the injury?
