DeAndre Yedlin started in the USA’s 4-2 defeat to Colombia during the early hours of Friday.

The right-back played the full 90 minutes, as the Americans threw away a 2-1 lead at home.

However, the Newcastle defender received his fair share of criticism on Twitter following the USMT’s defeat to Colombia.

How fans reacted to Yedlin’s performance

The right-back has proven to be a good signing for Newcastle since arriving in 2016, but he still has his flaws.

If he didn’t have pace, he likely wouldn’t have a career. And a lack of real competition has seen him start more games than many for Newcastle over the past few years.

Defensively, he’s not as sound as you’d like, especially compared to someone like Paul Dummett.

But Yedlin can certainly do a job for Newcastle, and will surely only continue to get better defensively under Rafa Benitez.
