U.S. Soccer have announced two changes to their current roster before their World Cup qualifier against Trinidad & Tobago on Tuesday.
Newcastle full-back DeAndre Yedlin was booked in the US last game on Friday night – the 6-0 win against St Vincent and the Grenadines – and therefore he is suspended from the game on Tuesday night.
DeAndre Yedlin – in US colors
The communication is that Matt Besler and DeAndre Yedlin are departing with Besler returning home because his wife is due to give birth to their daughter.
So Matt has his priorities right.
DeAndre Yedlin has been allowed by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann to return to Newcastle where he can get more familiar with his new club.
Michael Bradley and Michael Orozco will now join the US squad.
DeAndre will be able to get himself bedded in at Newcastle and get some training in under the expert coaching of Rafa Benitez over the next week – that’s good.
Klinsmann expects this to be a huge learning season for the 23 year-old and big things are expected of the American at Newcastle.
He’s certainly keen to do very well for the new Newcastle United and that will go a long way in helping him become a success on Tyneside.
