DeAndre Yedlin gets first USMNT call-up since 2019

Cristian Roldan is left off training camp roster, but could still be named to Nations League squad.

For a variety of reasons, DeAndre Yedlin has not made a USMNT appearance since November 2019. That is poised to change soon. The former Seattle Sounders fullback was one of 27 players called into a Europe-based training camp that will also feature a friendly against Switzerland on May 30, and will serve as an early start for the Concacaf Nations League finals that start on June 3.

Yedlin enters the camp as the most-capped player (62) on this USMNT roster and at one point seemed a shoo-in for reaching 100 international caps. But a combination of injuries and uncertainty surrounding his club play have left his national team future far more in doubt.

But since transferring to Turkish giants Galatasaray over the summer, Yedlin has looked far more like the promising talent he always seemed destined to be. He ended up making 11 Turkish Süper Lig appearances, including nine starts, and helped Galatasaray earn a spot in the Champions League qualifying rounds.

Notably left off the roster was Cristian Roldan, but how much should be read into that is difficult. The Sounders play Austin FC on May 30 — the same day as the USMNT friendly — and it’s entirely possible that he could be added to the Nations League roster when it is finalized on May 24. If he’s not named to the Nations League roster, he’d almost certainly be named to the Gold Cup roster over the summer.
