Newcastle’s DeAndre Yedlin sits out USMNT seven goal thrashing
After recovering from his operation in May and returning to the Newcastle United matchday squad, DeAndre Yedlin was recalled to the latest USMNT squad.
The NUFC defender in the squad for two CONCACAF Nations League group matches.
Friday night saw the USA take on Cuba and hand out a 7-0 thrashing.
However, DeAndre Yedlin watched the seven goal scoring spree from the bench.
The USMNT already 4-0 up after 13 minutes and 6-0 by half-time, then easing off with only one more after the break.
The result expected as Yedlin’s international colleagues were up against a team ranked 178th in the world.
A harder test lies ahead on Tuesday away against Canada, who are ranked 58th in the world compared to the USA at 38th.
DeAndre Yedlin is expected to return to the team for this more difficult test.
Today (Saturday) sees two Newcastle players with European Championship qualifiers, Fabian Schar and Switzerland playing Denmark away, whilst Emil Krafth and Sweden are away at Malta.
