Bedoya scores in second straight game for Nantes

While some Americans have struggled to settle with their new clubs in Europe, Alejandro Bedoya seems to be settling in just fine.

The U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder scored the game-winning goal in a vital road match against French giants Olympique Marseille on Friday, pushing Nantes up to fourth in Ligue 1. In the 16th minute, Bedoya was played a pass from the left of the box and with his left foot, hit a shot that took a deflection and dribbled slowly into the goal. Marseille’s goalkeeper Steve Mandanda looked to be caught flat footed on the shot and didn’t make an effort to keep the ball from crossing the line.

It’s Bedoya’s fourth goal of the season in all competitions for Nantes since he joined the French club last August. Bedoya also scored in Nantes’ 2-1 victory over Valenciennes last Tuesday.
