MLS All-Stars get blasted by Italy’s AS Roma, DeAndre Yedlin plays 24 minutes

*     *     *

The MLS All-Star Game, for most, was a forgettable exhibition Wednesday (outside of the big halftime news) as storied Italian club AS Roma cruised to a 3-1 win at Sporting Park.

That certainly wasn’t the case for Sounders FC rookie DeAndre Yedlin, however, as the 20-year-old Seattle native played the final 24 minutes and even had a couple highlights. The defender had a few shaky moments, of course, but also showcased once again his exciting potential with a couple scoring chances late in the game.

Yedlin, the third-youngest to play in the All-Star Game and first rookie since 2005, is scheduled to return home Thursday and should be able to play in some capacity Saturday against FC Dallas.

Here was some reaction to the game from MLSsoccer.com and SI.com.

What did you think of the game and/or Yedlin?
