DeAndre Yedlin called into USMNT; will miss Friday’s match

Sounders right back DeAndre Yedlin has been called up to the U.S. men’s national team for its Friday-night friendly against Ecuador, meaning he will miss Seattle’s crucial match against Vancouver that same night.

But Clint Dempsey was not and will be available for the Sounders — and fellow Supporter’s Shield chasers L.A. could be without the services of Robbie Keane, Landon Donovan and Omar Gonzalez for its Sunday match against Dallas thanks to their own national team duties.

Yedlin has earned seven caps with the national team, all this year, and will travel to the East Coast for training in Boston ahead of the match against the South Americans in East Hartford. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m. PST and will be televised nationally on ESPN and UniMas.

Below is the full USMNT roster:

GOALKEEPERS (3):Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)

DEFENDERS (7): John Brooks (Hertha Berlin), Timmy Chandler (Eintracht Frankfurt), Greg Garza (Club Tijuana), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Michael Orozco (Puebla), Tim Ream (Bolton Wanderers), DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle Sounders FC)

MIDFIELDERS (6): Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes), Joe Corona (Club Tijuana), Mix Diskerud (Rosenborg), Luis Gil (Real Salt Lake), Julian Green (Hamburg), Alfredo Morales (Ingolstadt)

FORWARDS (5): Jozy Altidore (Sunderland), Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy), Joe Gyau (Borussia Dortmund), Miguel Ibarra (Minnesota United FC), Bobby Wood (1860 Munich)
