Newcastle United defender DeAndre Yedlin was left carrying the can as the US national side played out a 1-1 draw with Peru in an international friendly yesterday.

The 25-year-old former Tottenham Hotspur man hasn’t had the best October international break, but then again neither have the US as their first game against Colombia saw a 4-2 defeat and having been dropped to the bench for the Peru match, Yedlin only came on for the final six minutes but it was enough for him to get caught as they secured the equaliser.

In fairness, he came on in the 86th minute and that’s where I’m seeing their goal credited, so it’s not like he had much chance to get into the game first and that’s always a risk with substitutes, but it hasn’t stopped some fans from overreacting on social media.

I’d suggest their problems go deeper than Yedlin even if it’s accepted he hasn’t been great for them lately.
