DeAndre Yedlin deserves a chance with Spurs after US beat Germany

DeAndre Yedlin

The Tottenham star did his bit as Jurgen Klinsmann's side stunned the World Champions in Cologne.

Tottenham fullback DeAndre Yedlin has shown club boss Mauricio Pochettino just why he should be very much involved in the Spurs first team next season, in a couple of sensational results for the US national team during their tour of Europe.

Yedlin was a second half substitute in the astonishing 4-3 comeback win over the Netherlands last weekend, and played a vital role in that win, assisting defender John Brooks for the United States' second goal.

The way with which the 21-year-old got forward and squared for that strike is actually what Tottenham fans will be hoping to see at White Hart Lane next season.

But things got one better for Jurgen Klinsmann's side on Wednesday night, with the US securing an amazing win over Germany, the United States' first ever. Yedlin emerged in the second half to shore up the defence against the home side while also providing superb overlapping runs.

A yellow card for scything down Arsenal's Mesut Ozil will also have endeared the player to Spurs fans that little more, and his energy and tenacity look like being a vital weapon for Spurs to try and utilise.

Yedlin was only given a handful of minutes in the 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa last season, having joined six months earlier than planned after arriving from Seattle Sounders in January.

There were many calls for his inclusion in a side often playing Eric Dier or Vlad Chiriches out of position at right fullback, but Pochettino stuck to his guns, having insisted that the US international was brought in early so that he could settle at the club without having to worry about performances.

However, Yedlin was included on the club's post season tour of Malaysia and Australia, and played every minute of both matches, impressing with his forward runs and his tenacious covering work, winning the man of the match award in the victory over Sydney FC.

And these latest two performances for his country, as the US have travelled to the sides that were declared the third best in Brazil, and champions of the entire tournament, and emerging victorious, underline how big a season he could have once the new campaign begins.
