USMNT midfielder Alejandro Bedoya stopped by the 15/16 Academy practice Friday morning as they prepare for their quarterfinal match up with the Chicago Fire 15/16 Academy. Ale watched some of the session and then spent a couple minutes talking with the staff and players.
Head coach Victor Pastora
“We respect a top MLS academy like Chicago Fire and understand we must be at our best to succeed. This is a great opportunity and we look forward to the game.”
Captain Carlos Tellez
“At the start of the season I didn’t know what to expect. We had been national champion two years prior, but the team had split up a bit and lost key players to other opportunities. It wasn’t until the first game, which we won 4-1, that I realized we had the potential. Now 11 months later we could not be more excited. Despite injuries and obstacles throughout the year we have never given up. I have no doubt we have what it takes to be champion and will be ready to step it up again to secure a ticket to California for the semifinal.”
Weston FC Alum & USMNT Midfielder Alejandro Bedoya
