Sounders Insider

Yedlin heading back from U.S. national team

USStweetThe Sounders aren't training today, but there was a bit of good news for the club as the U.S. national team tweeted that Yedlin is among a handful of players being released before the Tuesday match against Ireland in Dublin.

That means Yedlin should be with his team for most or all training leading up to the Western Conference final opener Nov. 23 at Los Angeles.

There could be additional club news this evening, as Sounders owner Joe Roth is scheduled to meet with local media as part of the annual Alliance Business meeting:
