Former Boston College midfielder Alejandro Bedoya has earned a try out with Birmingham of the English Premier League. Bedoya, 23, has played the last two seasons with Swedish club Orebro SK.

Bedoya told his club's website oskfotboll.se:

"Hopefully I can prove I have the qualities to convince but most importantly it gives me a chance to see where I stand compared with some of the best players in the best league in the world."

Orebro SK coach Magnus Sköldmark added:

"Det är roligt att en Premier League klubb visar intresse för en av våra spelare. Det är ett bevis på att vi har hög kvalité i vår spelartrupp och en bra elitverksamhet."

For those of you not fluent in Swedish, this roughly translates to: "It's funny that a Premier League club shows an interest in one of our players. It is proof that we have high quality in our squad and a good elite."

Bedoya, who will be in England later this week for the tryout, also is a midfielder for the U.S. National Team, and has played in seven games.
