Philadelphia Union Captain Alejandro Bedoya has had special moments at BMO Field in Toronto. As the Union head north of the border this week, we take a look at a couple of notable achievements accomplished by Bedoya in Toronto.
On September 24, 2016, Bedoya silenced the crowd at BMO Field in Toronto with a memorable first. In the 25th minute of the match, Bedoya was able to slip behind the Toronto defense and retrieve a lovely ball from Fabian Herbers.
As Bedoya found himself all alone in the final third, the U.S. National Team midfielder took a touch just inside the 18 and connected with a sensational chip that was sent just beyond the outstretched arms of Toronto goalkeeper Clint Irwin. Bedoya’s chip floated above Irwin, but suck underneath the crossbar, giving the midfielder his first career goal.
Bedoya’s chip wasn’t the only goal he’s scored at BMO Field. Later in the 2016 season, Bedoya came up big for his squad notching the a goal in the playoffs against Toronto. With the Union down by a pair, Bedoya buried home a bouncing ball in the box off a corner kick.
The Captain will look to capture that goal-scoring magic in Canada on Friday when they take on Toronto FC at 8 p.m. with the match televised on PHL17.
