U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has had no shortage of praise for Alejandro Bedoya in recent weeks, and that will not look to stop any time soon after the midfielder scored another game-winning goal.
Bedoya netted the decisive tally for the second straight match in which he has played for FC Nantes, scoring the opener in Tuesday’s 2-0 victory over FC Lorient in a Coupe de la Ligue match. Bedoya found the back of the net in the 73rd minute with a low finish following a cross from the right, giving him two goals across all competitions this season for his new team.
Bedoya had recently scored the winner in a Ligue 1 clash with AC Ajaccio.
Brek Shea did not get on the scoresheet on Tuesday, but he did make a rare appearance for Stoke City in their Capital One Cup game. Shea came off the bench and played the final 44 minutes for Stoke as they defeated Birmingham City, 4-2, on penalty kicks after a 4-4 draw that went into extra-time. He did not take a penalty kick.
You can see Bedoya’s goal here (at the 1:51 mark):
What do you think of Bedoya’s game-winning goal? Expect Shea to earn more playing time with Stoke in the near future? Do you see both of them getting called into the U.S. Men’s National Team camp next month?
