USMNT beats South Korea, 2-0, as DeAndre Yedlin earns first cap

The U.S. men’s national team played its first game of 2014 Saturday (much like the women the day before). There was also a local touch to the 2-0 win against South Korea as Sounders FC captain Brad Evans was in the starting lineup and, perhaps more notably, Seattle native DeAndre Yedlin made his first senior-team appearance as a substitute in the 74th minute.

Yedlin actually replaced Evans at right back, and he was greeted with a smile and a pat on the head. There are more appearances in Yedlin’s future, to be sure.

In the game-related action, San Jose’s Chris Wondolowski scored both goals in the 2-0 win at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. (upping his career total to eight). Nick Rimando made five saves for the shutout to improve to 10-0-0, fifth-most wins in U.S. Soccer history.

Next up: a road game at the Ukraine on March 5.

Here are some federation-provided quotes. Highlights below:
