Bedoya enjoyed something of a breakout year in France, becoming one of FC Nantes’ most effective attackers on the wing. On the national team side, he rode an effective 2013 Gold Cup into the World Cup squad, where he suddenly finds himself in contention to make the starting lineup.

OUTLOOK: Tim Howard was complimentary of Bedoya’s multi-faceted nature during interviews at training camp. Bedoya will have to be flexible, whether he’s playing as a true winger or more centrally in a diamond midfield. He might have to defend quite a bit, but he will also have to be an outlet for quick attacks.
