Lee Nguyen and Jermaine Jones featured against Colombia, and now, as expected, they have left the United States camp to return to the New England Revolution. U.S. Soccer tweeted today that the pair were released back to their clubs, along with DeAndre Yedlin and Damarcus Beasley, and no new players will be added.
This bodes very well for the Revolution, as it will give both key midfielders a full week to rest and train with the squad before next Sunday's match against the Red Bulls in New Jersey. Jones put in a full 90-minute shift at center-back for the Yanks, while Nguyen made a substitute's appearance in the 78th minute and nearly set up a goal during his lively cameo.
Yedlin and Beasley have also been released by the national team. Yedlin will presumably rejoin his clubmates in Seattle as they look ahead to the first leg of their conference final against Los Angeles, while Beasley's release will just be for rest, it seems.
