The Tottenham Hotspur player came on as a second-half substitute for the USA this weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur right-back DeAndre Yedlin had to make do with a place on the bench when the USA kicked off their Gold Cup quarter-final clash against Cuba on Saturday night.
But the 21-year-old still got the chance to show what he can do when he came on in the second period, proving a constant threat on the wing and prompting fans to tell Tottenham exactly how he should be utilised.
Yedlin’s presence at White Hart Lane has been complicated by the fact that Tottenham have signed fellow right-back Kieran Trippier from Burnley after the player was an ever-present for Sean Dyche’s side last season.
When you consider that Kyle Walker and Eric Dier are also on Spurs’ books, the chance of Yedlin getting much game-time in the back-line seems unlikely in the extreme.
But there is an alternative that has been spoken about time and time again: Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino should play Yedlin on the wing.
That was the feeling of those who commented on the player this weekend, both Tottenham fans and those supporting the USA.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what people thought of Yedlin’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
@ussoccer why does yedlin not start. Kid is an absolute pace changer.— Boomer (@SoonerMagic_) July 19, 2015
As soon as Yedlin enters the game, the #USMNT become so predictable because everything is to his side. Nobody can stop it though.— Matthew Bagley (@BagleyKLAD) July 19, 2015
I hope Yedlin gets a good amount of playing time or at least some playing time at Spurs— Kevin A. Bankowski (@KA_Bank) July 18, 2015
This is what I'm saying, push Townsend out & move Yedlin up to Right Wing. He's got the speed & ability to be a threat.— Chance (@JuanAlphonso) July 19, 2015
