Alejandro Bedoya and the United States men's National Team secured their place in final round of 2018 World Cup qualifying with a 4-0 win over Trinidad & Tobago, and now have a showdown with Mexico in November on the horizon.
Bedoya, who has more than 50 national team caps to his name and played in the 2014 World Cup for the United States, started the game and went 66 minutes before being replaced by Paul Arriola, who scored the final goal.

On Wednesday morning, US Soccer legend and Fox analyst Eric Wynalda posted a tweet criticizing Bedoya in response to a follower. Bedoya saw Wynalda's message and slammed Wynalda in response.
@EricWynalda Granted I never played at the MNT level, but how does Bedoya merit a spot in the starting 11? What does JK see in him?— Dan Fenster (@dan_fenster) September 7, 2016
My only answer to that is I don't know- there are many that rate him- I believe there are many who are better https://t.co/IrmRDpozq6— Eric Wynalda (@EricWynalda) September 7, 2016
I can take criticism. Last night I was off my game & not good enough but this dude has a well documented dislike for me that I don't get.— Alejandro Bedoya (@AleBedoya17) September 7, 2016
Never seen someone try so hard to remain relevant. Begs for coaching jobs, TV commentator, analyst & a random radio show. You're a #HasBeen.— Alejandro Bedoya (@AleBedoya17) September 7, 2016
Bedoya then sent a tweet directly to Wynalda referencing the controversy over the 1998 World Cup team (John Harkes was dropped from the squad, and Wynalda later revealed the decision came after Harkes had an affair with Wynalda's wife), and asking if Wynalda was bitter that Bedoya "played at better clubs." Bedoya quickly deleted the tweet and later admitted he stepped over the line.
