Yes, Helsingborg #10 Alejandro Bedoya follows instructions well. Asked to score more in the preseason, the American bagged his fifth in nine overall matches this term to beat Syrianska 1-0. It was also his third in four league games, helping the Reds take the summit. All together now... dude is en fuego.
Helsingborg hot hand Alejandro Bedoya scored the equalizer in their 5-1 rally win on Saturday, but we only now have some video. And by some video, I mean the whole remainder of the game from about the 14th minute. It was his fourth goal in eight games across all competitions this term.It takes about a minute to unfold, but the goal play starts at about 14:57.
No, he hasn't become a nun and there's certainly no intervention needed - unless you ask Allsvenskan defenders. Helsingborg #10 Alejandro Bedoya has clearly taken the manager's request for more goals seriously, banging home his third in seven 2013 matches in a 4-1 win at Norrköping. And after depositing a shot from outside the box for the visitor's third on 48 minutes, he added an assist on their
Helslingborg should have signed Alejandro Bedoya to game-by-game pacts; just like at the beginning of his first deal with the club, the U.S. international opened this new one with a goal. Unfortunately, his getting loose for a late first half strike did not hold up, as they settled for a Svenska Cupen group stage draw with Assyriska.
Normally goalkeepers are hapless bystanders as Lionel Messi shows off his range of skills against them. But in last night's match between Sweden and Argentina, Andreas Isaksson was able to unleash an overhead kick to thwart the Barcelona magician. Via 101GG
USA goalkeeper Hope Solo has admitted that losing FIFA Women's Coach of the Year, Pia Sundhage, to Sweden, was a big blow to the team.
In a new interview with FIFA, the 31-year-old who picked up the Olympic gold medal with the USA women's team, said that it was initially difficult to work in a team of "individuals" but Sundhage successfully ironed out the differences and inspired the USA Women's teams to new heights.
Sweden's national coach and the 2012 FIFA World Coach Of The Year for Women's Football, Pia Sundhage, is back in her native country gearing up for this summer's Euro 2013. Sundhage praised the USA women's football culture, but did not shy away from asserting her aim to see the Swedish girls working harder at this year's tournament.
2012 was certainly an incredible year for former USA women's coach, Pia Sundhage. She won her second (consecutive) Olympic gold medal, which culminated in their win over Japan in the final (a perfect 'World Cup final revenge') and upon announcing her retirement, was granted a send-off fit for a queen.
Ridiculously named Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey earned his seventh England U-21 cap in a 4-0 victory over Sweden at Walsall's Bescot Stadium on Tuesday night, and also managed to get on the scoresheet at the half-hour mark.
The former Charlton prodigy had an golden opportunity to score after 12 minutes earlier, however, when his domestic teammate Jordan Henderson delivered a perfect cross, gifting him a header at an open goal from two yards out.
From what we've heard in interviews with both father and son, we reckon Paul Ince believes Tom can go to the very top and will be miserly with his praise until he's got a Champions League medal or two in the bag. That would tally with his deadpan response to Tom opening the scoring in [...]
Blackpool youngster Tom Ince was the star of the show as England under 21s beat Sweden 4-0 in a friendly at the Banks's Stadium in Walsall. The Liverpool transfer target slid in to score the opening goal. Jonjo Shelvey added a second to make up for an earlier miss (we're going to give that its [...]

I'm sure many of you would agree that international friendlies are a bit of a distraction. A minor annoyance to clog up the club fixtures calendar, during which you cross your fingers and pray to God that the key men at your club don't pick up an injury.
After making headlines this summer with a high profile move to Paris Saint-Germain, Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovich suggests 32 year-old Steven Gerrard should follow suit.
Currently sitting in 13th place in the Premier League, Gerrard's Liverpool are struggling to remain relevant in Premier League Champion conversations and can ideally only play for a Champions League spot at this point, which would also be difficult.
The English Football Association has released a very unique set of highlights for the Sweden versus England match, which feature match highlights filmed by a pitchside camera. The unusual effect harkens back to football film highlights from the...
1. There's no way to look cool in a defensive wall.
2. That's it. That's England's level. A 4-2 defeat to Sweden should not spark clamour for an inquisition and, by and large, it hasn't. That marks real progress in the steady march toward the realisation that England are just an upper-mid-level, one-paced, unexciting national side that will probably win more games than they lose without ever challenging for a trophy.

Sweden inaugurated a new stadium in Stockholm, Friends Arena, with a friendly match against England tonight. But in this inauguration one man took all the attention: Sweden's superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. There has never been doubt about his quality, although sometimes he can be petulant and lazy.

Perhaps you've heard of it already. If not, you would have shortly anyway.
Zlatan's been in a decent run of form ever since joining the Parisians 10 goals in 10 matches. Decent because he's putting that form to absolute shame with Sweden. Well, tonight anyway. Twas merely a friendly, but the above is his fourth of four against England.
Despite having widespread interest, it seems for now that Alejandro Bedoya will return to Helsingborg on a six-month deal and be available again during the larger summer market. I've been informed that the only competing offer left on his table is from Swiss title chasers FC Sion (who employ former Rangers teammate Kyle Lafferty).
More to discuss soon, but today let's hit the Swedish store, where Helsingborg have made an extension offer to impending free agent Alejandro Bedoya. That alone is not much for news, but I can also report that Allsvenskan champs Elfsborg are making a real effort to lure him away. He also has a few admirers on the continent, but nothing remotely serious there for the moment.
What do you get a massive egomaniac for Christmas? Well his own dictionary entry, of course. Which is surely going down splendidly with Zlatan's family during the holiday break. (Actually, rumors persist his public persona is very much that merely a persona and that he's actually rather a nice guy behind it all.
It was one of those rare moments. It was one of those moments when language languishes into nothingness and even the most eloquent descend into senseless drivel. It was a moment when all opinion was void, and instead replaced with pure, universal awe.
You don't often hear about matches in Sweden being marred by violent and unruly supporters anymore, but on Monday an Allsvenskan match between Djurgarden and Mjallby was abandoned after just 37 minutes when a Mjallby player was hit with a bottle.
The home side Djurgarden felt they should have had a free kick when Ghanian midfielder Yussif Chibsah went down in the centre of the field clutching his face.
Netherlands announced 23 players to face the USA on April 9 in the Hague. The Dutch have quite a bit experience on their roster, with 12 players owning 30 or more caps. The most capped player on the roster is former WPS player Daphne Koster, who has played 128 times for her country while scoring six goals.
The US will play in the Algarve Cup final against reigning champions Germany after earning a 1-1 draw against former coach Pia Sundhage and Sweden in their final group-stage match. With the US down to third-choice keeper Ashlyn Harris, who made her first senior international start after replacing the injured Jill Loyden in the US's 5-0 win against China (who in turn was replacing an injured Hope Solo), Sweden managed to score the first goal allowed by the Olympic gold medal winners in the group stage.

Genoa defender Andreas Granqvist would consider a move to Liverpool after he admitted he was flattered by media reports linking him with the Premier League side. Reports have claimed that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has deployed scouts to Italy on a number of occasions this season to watch Sweden international Granqvist in action, and following glowing recommendations, is considering a January bid.
