MNT Rewind: DeAndre Yedlin Returns for Newcastle United

Let’s start in England, where U.S. MNT fans will be thrilled to see the return of DeAndre Yedlin to the Newcastle United lineup. After suffering a hamstring injury just before the beginning of the Premier League season, the right back made the bench for the Magpies’ 1-0 win at Swansea last week and was handed the start in the club’s 2-1 win against Stoke City on Saturday.

Making his Premier League debut for Newcastle United, Yedlin went the distance and performed well on the defensive side of the ball. Newcastle United picked up their third of the season, lifting the club into fourth place, now five weeks into the new campaign.

At midweek in Mexico, MNT center back Omar Gonzalez scored the game-winning goal in Pachuca’s 2-1 Copa MX win vs. Cimarrones de Sonora. Gonzalez rose above traffic to head home a corner kick in the 69th minute of the Tuzos victory, sending them to a Round of 16 date with Atletico Zacatepec this coming Wednesday.

 Back in the states, Dom Dwyer opened his Orlando City account in a big way, scoring two goals in the club’s wild 3-3 draw at Atlanta United FC. Dwyer opened the scoring in the 10th minute when he got on the end of Donny Toia’s lobbed ball into the box, before powering his header inside the lower left post. Just before halftime, Dwyer again got on the end of a cross, this time from Cyle Larin, before nodding into an empty net in the 39th minute.

Dwyer was also part of Orlando’s third goal, swinging in a cross of his own from the right which found Cyle Larin, who tucked his effort inside the left post. WATCH all three of Dwyer's contributions by clicking here

In Kansas City, Graham Zusi’s long run through midfield set the table for Diego Rubio’s game-winner in Sporting KC’s 3-1 victory against New England Revolution. The win pushed Sporting up to third in the tight Western Conference, just one point back of first-place Vancouver Whitecaps FC. Sporting now turns their attention on the next big prize, the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Final against New York Red Bulls on Wednesday.

On the youth international front, on-loan defender Cameron Carter-Vickers scored in his debut for Sheffield United, tallying in the 33rd minute of a 1-0 win at Bolton Wanderers on Sept. 12.
