USA fans react on Twitter to ex-Rangers midfielder Alejandro Bedoya's performance

The Nantes star put in a man of the match performance in the USA's 1-1 draw with Switzerland.

Former Rangers midfielder Alejandro Bedoya was the US national team’s star performer in Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Switzerland, with fans flocking to Twitter during the match to sing his praises.

After being used in an unfamiliar defensive role in last week’s 3-2 defeat to Denmark, the Nantes ace returned to his more favoured position on the right wing, where he helped create a number of first-half chances before Brek Shea gave the visitors the lead on the stroke of the interval with a stunning free-kick.

Jozy Altidore’s 68th-minute red card put Jurgen Klinsmann’s side on the back foot, however, and, after Bedoya was substituted with 14 minutes left, the equaliser came four minutes later through Valentin Stocker.

Nevertheless, despite losing another second-half lead, it was still a respectable draw for the US against European opposition, with Bedoya rewarded with the broadcaster's man of the match award for his efforts.

One of few Americans getting regular first-team minutes in a top European league, the 38-times capped international has made himself a core member of Klinsmann’s line-up since the World Cup and supporters are now starting to realise his importance.
