Alejandro Bedoya’s career resurgence was recently profiled by Rangers Report & this past weekend saw Bedoya score a beauty of a goal that was critical in securing the win for FC Nantes.

Franco Panizo’s summarizes Bedoya’s performance for Soccer by Ives :  “FC Nantes were on their way to a third straight shutout loss on Tuesday, but Alejandro Bedoya ensured that did not happen with one of his best outings of the season.”

“Three days after playing 83 minutes in a 1-0 defeat to Guingamp, Bedoya enjoyed a strong performance that included an equalizer in Nantes’ 2-1 come-from-behind win over relegation-threatened Valenciennes.”

“Bedoya, who played a number of positions in the match, pulled Nantes level seven minutes after they fell behind in the second half with a familiar left-footed strike and later drew a penalty kick that a teammate failed to convert.”

“Bedoya now has three goals this season across all competitions.”

You can see the goal here at the ten second mark.

Multiple sources in Mexico are reporting (from Milenio Periódico Digitalthat Damarcus Beasley’s career with Puebla may be coming to an end.  As featured by Rangers Report recently, Beasley’s risky move to Mexican football has paid off more then anyone would have expected as the former Rangers midfielder has transformed his career & is in line to be the starting left back for the United States in the World Cup.

Beasley has been with Puebla since 2011 but now appears to be on the move.

Tom Marshall of MLS speculates that Beasley will likely stay in the Mexican league & links Beasley to a move to either Querétaro, Pumas UNAM or  Monterrey.
