Yedlin undergoes groin surgery, possible doubt for Gold Cup

DeAndre Yedlin could possibly miss next month’s Concacaf Gold Cup due to injury.

The U.S. Men’s National Team and Newcastle United right back underwent groin surgery on Tuesday. Yedlin, 25, posted on social media after his procedure and will now aim to recover for international duty come June.

Yedlin has not played in Premier League action since April 6th and did not feature in the Magpies latest 3-2 loss to Liverpool last weekend. He’s made 29 league appearances for Newcastle, scoring one goal and adding two assists.

Gregg Berhalter’s side opens group stage play in the competition on June 18th against Guyana in St. Paul. They will also face Trinidad & Tobago in Cleveland on June 22nd before concluding against Panama in Kansas City four days later.

Yedlin has won 59 caps with the USMNT since 2014, most recently wearing the captain’s armband in a March 1-1 draw against Chile.



  1. Speedy recovery. IMHO, Coach B never intended to use him regularly at RB during the GC. We got a hint of how his “profile” fits into the MNT/Crew team during the 2 March friendlies.

  2. IMO this is one of the worst things that could have happened heading towards the Gold Cup. This essentially insures that Adams is not going to be used at his natural position (CDM/6) but will be played as the RB. Additionally this insures that we’re going to see either Bradley or Trapp starting in the 6 roll, as Berhalter is not going to introduce anyone new at either RB or CDM.

  3. I agree with Imperative voice…but

    here we go again…..Adams at Right back…

    Don’t do it !!!!!

    • I agree with you. We need him in the midfield. What American coaches need to realize start someone young like a Sergio Dest.They will perform hoefully well and get interest from a bigfer club proppelinh their career forward. European and South American national team coaches do it all the time and it works.

  4. Since the Chile start — and then equalizer allowed — shows we are still not freed of our Yedlin addiction, even after Peru last year, this is probably a useful cold turkey period where they have to sort out our other RB options. And perhaps find someone who actually plays defense.

  5. Speedy recovery, DeAndre Yedlin! The silver lining is that this could be a great opportunity for Nick Lima to show what he’s made of when certain Gold Cup games and tactical situations that don’t call for Tyler Adams to be taking the right back role.
