25 January 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
DeAndre Yedlin has been named in the United States' national squad for their forthcoming friendlies against Chile and Panama.
The right-back, who completed his move from MLS side Seattle Sounders earlier this month, joins up with Jurgen Klinsmann's team for their fixture against Chile in Rancagua on Wednesday, January 28.
He will remain with the States as they play a further match against Panama in California on Sunday, February 8.
DeAndre currently has 10 senior caps for the US Men’s National Team to his name, three of those having been earned at last summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
Meanwhile, Academy defender Cameron Carter-Vickers helped the US Under-20 Men’s National Team secure qualification for the FIFA Under-20 World Cup with a 2-0 victory over El Salvador in their CONCACAF Under-20 Championship play-off in Jamaica on Saturday evening.
The 17-year-old centre-half played every minute of every game for his nation at the latter tournament this month, scoring in a 1-1 draw with Guatemala before a 1-0 loss to Panama and consecutive wins over Aruba (8-0), Jamaica (2-0) and Trinidad & Tobago (1-0) set up Saturday’s play-off clash.
The FIFA Under-20 World Cup takes place this summer in New Zealand.
