DeAndre Yedlin has been reflecting on his time in England.
The defender joined Tottenham Hotspur from Seattle Sounders in 2014.
Yedlin spent the 2015-16 season on loan at Sunderland before joining Newcastle United last summer.
And the 23-year-old has revealed the "embarrassing" moment that set him on the path to success at the Championship-winning club
Here's your daily briefing:
Several months into his Sunderland career, Yedlin had a career-changing moment.
In December 2015, he was substituted in the 19th minute in a home game against Watford.
“That had never happened to me in my life," Yedlin told Sports Illustrated.
"It was eye-opening. It was embarrassing. I didn't understand it. I needed to make the best out of (the loan).
"I was really trying to figure out, what is my problem? What can I do to better myself? I figured out that mentally, I needed to get stronger. In England, especially, mentally if you're not strong it can eat you up."
