It’s been something of a roller-coaster week for U.S. national team and Nantes midfielder Alejandro Bedoya.

First there was the potential transfer to the Colorado Rapids and/or Major League Soccer that apparently fell through, which perhaps led the 28-year-old to unleash his frustration via Twitter. That was the bad.

The good came on Wednesday, when Bedoya, who had entered the game just seconds beforehand, scored the winning goal for Nantes in a Coupe de France round of 32 victory over Mantes. There’s instant impact substitutes, and there’s scoring with your first touch 10 seconds after being subbed on.
