Former’s U.S. men’s national team coach Bob Bradley picked up his first Premier League win on Saturday in thrilling fashion, leading Swansea City to a 5–4 comeback win over Crystal Palace.

Bradley, who was hired in October and began his time at Swansea 0-3-2, saw his club go up 3–1 on two goals from Leroy Fer and a free kick marker from Gylfi Sigurdsson only to lose their lead and eventually fall behind 4–3. It was a strike from Palace’s Christian Benteke that put them in front in the 84th minute.

But that wouldn’t bury Swansea. Substitute Fernando Llorente came on and found the net twice in stoppage time to put them back in front.

Crystal Palace is now No. 16 in the Premier League table at 3-8-2. Swansea improved to 2-8-3, sitting at No. 19.

Bradley is the first American manager to win a Premier League game.
