Deandre Yedlin starting at right mid for USMNT

New, 61 comments

Deandre Yedlin will be starting for the United States in his first game since the World Cup. It's his first start for the USMNT and comes in Friday's friendly against the Ecuador.

although Yedlin has been used almost exclusively as a fullback with the Seattle sounders, Jurgen klinsmann has shown a preference to use the speedy 21-year-old in the midfield. Yedlin made two of his three World Cup appearances at midfield, only playing fullback in the Belgium match when Fabian Johnson went down with an injury.

As a midfielder, Yedlin is more free to attack and with Timmy chandler at righ back the two players will likely swap positions with regularity.

USMNT lineup: Guzan; Chandler, Orozco, Brooks, Garza; Yedlin, Bedoya, Diskerud, Gyau; donovan  (c), altidore

Kickoff is scheduled for 4 pm. Feel free to use this as the gamethread.
