He may have only been at White Heart Lane a couple of months, but judging by this challenge DeAndre Yedlin is already beginning to understand the rivalry between his side and neighbours Arsenal.

An incredible result on Wednesday this week saw the USA overcome Germany by a score of 2-1 in friendly, as the defending world champions continue to struggle following their coronation.

The USA, however, were in heaven, having beaten the Netherlands just a few days earlier, 4-3, representing a big turn around in fortunes for them after several years of drudgery under the guidance of Jurgen Klinsmann.

There were a number of talking points during the game on Wednesday, but none more so than Yedlin’s leveller on his Arsenal counterpart.

As Ozil cut through the USA midfield, the young full-back saw his opportunity to bring the Gunners star down with a powerfully late challenge, which earned him a booking.

Whether it was intended or not, it will surely stoke the fires ahead of the new season, as neither player will forget about this.
