Alejandro Bedoya called to U.S. camp
CARY, N.C. -- Alejandro Bedoya has joined the U.S. training camp before the Gold Cup after Benny Feilhaber was injured during an MLS game Saturday.
Bedoya, a midfielder, has made seven appearances for the U.S. and was on the preliminary roster for last year's World Cup. He has spent the last two years in Sweden with Orebro, scoring four goals in nine matches this season.
Feilhaber is being evaluated after injuring his ankle in New England's 1-0 loss to Los Angeles. Teams have until 24 hours before their first Gold Cup game to replace injured players. The Americans begin group play June 7 against Canada.
The U.S. also faces World Cup champion Spain on Saturday in an exhibition.
