Neymar, who earned an unwanted reputation for his playacting at this summer's World Cup, appeared to go down easily after Yedlin's challange in the 22nd minute.

It prompted the defender to ask the man in charge: "did you watch the World Cup."

Yedlin could feature for his country again when USA host Mexico in Tennessee on Tuesday night.
