USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 18-20 31939918 Americans Abroad Americans+Abroad USA

The drifting run compared favorably to forays he once made in Scotland and Sweden. Alejandro Bedoya isn't biding his time in mid-tier European leagues any more, though. This clever piece of movement toward the back post in Nantes' trademark yellow kits provided him with the moment he worked for years to create. He didn't waste it. One good first touch diverted the cross into the back of the net past Ajaccio goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa for Bedoya’s first Ligue 1 goal and a 1-0 victory for his side. In one well-taken swoop, the diligence and the patience he exhibited reaped the dividends he expected all along.


Bedoya's dramatic winner off the substitutes' bench highlighted another busy weekend for Americans Abroad. Read on to learn more about the goal-scoring exploits of Terrence Boyd and Aron Johannsson and the contractual pursuits of Oguchi Onyewu.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 18-20 31939919 Alejandro Bedoya, Nantes midfielder Alejandro+Bedoya%2C+Nantes+midfielder USA

Bedoya claimed his first Ligue 1 goal off the bench to lift Nantes to a 1-0 win over Ajaccio on Saturday. The former Helsingborgs midfielder entered the match inside the final 10 minutes and wasted no time in his bid to make an impact. Bedoya turned home at the back post five minutes from time to hand Nantes maximum points and secure his first goal in a major European league.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 18-20 31939097 Aron Johannsson, AZ striker Aron+Johannsson%2C+AZ+striker USA

The in-form striker played a part in all three goals to fuel AZ's 3-1 victory over Cambuur on Sunday. Johannsson prompted Roy Beerens' equalizer after 35 minutes with a tidy square pass before tucking home the winner two minutes before the break. The World Cup hopeful then grabbed his seventh league goal of the campaign and sealed the victory with a clever cutback and rasping drive inside the far post after 68 minutes.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 18-20 31939917 Terrence Boyd, Rapid Wien striker Terrence+Boyd%2C+Rapid+Wien+striker USA

Boyd (seen here during Europa League action) climbed off the bench after the interval and spurred Rapid to a 2-2 home draw with Sturm Graz on Saturday. Rapid responded to its two-goal deficit by scoring twice before the hour mark to snatch a point. Boyd tallied the equalizer from the penalty spot to give his side a second straight draw in league play and increase his haul to six goals in nine domestic appearances

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 18-20 31939096 Jozy Altidore, Sunderland striker Jozy+Altidore%2C+Sunderland+striker USA

Swansea City welcomed Gus Poyet to the Premier League with a 4-0 triumph at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday. Altidore watched all but the final eight minutes from the bench after returning to international duty with the United States in midweek. He must tussle for a place in the side with returning striker Steven Fletcher in order to help Sunderland recover from a dismal start to the season.

USA 2737 43 Americans Abroad: October 18-20 31939095 Oguchi Onyewu, unattached defender Oguchi+Onyewu%2C+unattached+defender USA

Onyewu (seen here during the USMNT's friendly vs. Guatemala) continued his chase for a fresh contract by agreeing to train with England Championship promotion contenders Queens Park Rangers, according to MLSsoccer.com. The former U.S. international lynchpin left Sporting Lisbon in the summer after spending the previous season on loan with Malaga. His search for a new club hasn't yielded a contract yet, but he will attempt to earn a fresh pact during his time with QPR.
