DeAndre Yedlin may be on loan at Sunderland this year, but he's still a Tottenham Hotspur player, and an American. As such, he's expected to play a role in tonight's World Cup Qualifier for USA against Guatemala in Guatemala City.
Though he's spent most of his club career as a right back, USA manager Jurgen Klinsmann hasn't been averse to playing Yedlin on the right side of midfield, and some think this might be Yedlin's long-term future position. Some suspect Klinsmann might deploy him in midfield for this match.
USA haven't lost to Guatemala since 1988, but it's never easy traveling in CONCACAF. USA are currently tied in their group stage with Trinidad & Tobago with four points from two matches. USA are expected to qualify for "The Hex," the six team final round of World Cup qualification from the CONCACAF region, but more recently life has been rocky under former Tottenham star Klinsmann. A loss or dropped points may make the seat under Klinsmann uncomfortably warm, especially with the Copa America Centennial coming up.
Feel free to use this as an open thread!
