But the defeat – and results elsewhere – saw the USMNT drop from third to fifth in CONCACAF’s hexagonal qualifying tournament.

Yedlin – who played the full 90 minutes against Trinidad and Tobago – will now return to Tyneside to prepare for Sunday's game against Southampton at the St Mary's Stadium.
