Yedlin made his debut for Inter Miami in the 2022 season opener on February 26, and has since gone on to play over 900 minutes and record three assists, one of which set up the game-winning goal against the Seattle Sounders. Yedlin also captained Inter Miami twice, including a match against Atlanta United FC, leading by example and setting up the first goal in a 2-1 victory. 

Yedlin will join the national team after the team’s match against the Portland Timbers set for May 28 at 8 p.m. ET at DRV PNK Stadium.
