Agoos, Razov contribute key goals during debuts for teams in Europe.

(Thursday, December 21, 2000) -- Two United States nationals found net yesterday in debuts with European sides.

Jeff Agoos scored the game-winner for West Bromwich's reserves in his debut for the club.
Defender Jeff Agoos headed in a cross by Anthony Watson in the 78th minute to lift West Bromwich’s reserves to a 1-0 over Stoke City in the Avon League Cup.

Agoos, 32, is on a two-week loan from Major League Soccer’s D.C. United, though the veteran of 102 United States caps wouldn’t mind impressing and earning a full-time transfer.

"I didn’t know a whole lot about West Brom before coming over here," he told the Hawthorns' web site. "I knew they were a top club and were at the top of the first division, aiming to get up to the Premiership. That was intriguing to me because I’d like to play at the top level and here at West Bromwich Albion I could get that opportunity."

In Spain, American striker Ante Razov, who departed MLS after playing last season for the Chicago Fire, made an impressive debut for struggling Racing Ferrol of the Spanish second division by scoring in the 18th minute of a 1-1 draw with Gijon.

Racing is 21st among 22 teams in the league with 14 points. Gijon sits in eighth place with 25 points.
