Jurgen Klinsmann promises to give Tottenham Hotspur's DeAndre Yedlin chances for the USA

Tottenham WHL

Tottenham Hotspur's DeAndre Yedlin has collected 26 caps for the USA to date.

USA National Team coach Jurgen Klinsmann has told the Columbia Tribune that he intends to give Tottenham Hotspur youngster DeAndre Yedlin a chance to impress at international level.

Klinsmann has been keen to bring through youth players ever since taking charge of the US team, but recently he has favoured more experienced stars in his starting XI. 

With results worryingly poor at the moment, the German manager has come under pressure for this approach - but he insists that he does intend to give Yedlin an opportunity to stake his claim for a spot in the future. 

“There is no reason right now to cut the cord with any of these guys,” Klinsmann said about the veteran players in his squad. “It’s not necessary. Our responsibility also at the same time is to give fresh blood more of an opportunity, to give fresh players like DeAndre Yedlin and Jozy [Altidore] an opportunity to break in and give it an open fight for a spot.”

USA lost their most recent match against Costa Rica 1-0, with Yedlin playing in a right-wing slot in the team. 

The former Seattle Sounders man struggled to get on the ball in the contest, and the reaction from USA fans after the game on Twitter shows that he did not manage to impress

The 22-year-old will now return to England, where he will link back up with his teammates at loan employers Sunderland.

The Black Cats have changed manager while Yedlin was away with his country, and the rapid defender will now be hoping to show Sam Allardyce what he can do.
