FC Nantes is still alive in the Coupe de France, and, once again, it largely has U.S. midfielder Alejandro Bedoya to thank.

Bedoya scored a winner late in extra time for the second consecutive round, helping Nantes to a come-from-behind 4-3 victory. Bedoya, a 105th-minute substitute, scored the winner in the 118th, capping a wild match in which Nantes battled from 2-1 and 3-2 deficits before advancing. 

Four minutes after Johan Audel gave Nantes new life with a 114th-minute equalizer, Bedoya scored the winner. Off a set piece, Bedoya scored on a header at the post, setting off a raucous celebration on the Nantes sideline and keeping the game from going to penalties. 

Watch the dramatic goal below:

For Bedoya, the goal is the latest in his scoring streak. He now has four goals in his last six games, including an extra-time winner against Mantes 78 in the Coupe de France round of 32. It's also the second time he's scored on Bordeaux in three weeks, doing so in league play on Jan. 23.
