[AMERICANS ABROAD] Alejandro Bedoya, who in recent months has emerged as a candidate to make the U.S. World Cup team, opened his second season as a pro in Sweden with a 2-0 win for Orebro SK over Atvidaberg on Monday.
Bedoya, who played at Fairleigh Dickinson and Boston College, played the entire 90 minutes in midfield for Orebro.
Former Notre Dame defender Ryan Miller played the entire game for Halmstads BK in its 0-0 tie with visiting Trelleborgs FF.
The start of the Swedish season was pushed forward because of the World Cup even though Sweden won't be in the finals.
(Ghanaian Reuben Ayarna, Bedoya's BC teammate, was red-carded in GAIS Gothenburg's 0-0 tie with Malmo FF.)
