1.  DeAndre Yedlin Is Becoming A One-Trick Pony

Can he defend? Not really.  Can he distribute the ball? Meh.  Can he deliver accurate crosses? Nope.  But he’s fast, I guess. So there’s that.  If DeAndre thinks he’s going to beat out Kyle Walker and Eric Dier at the right back position for Spurs next year, he has another thing coming.  Yes, his speed allows him to get up field and behind defenses, but once he’s there he gives the ball away.  Actually, he gives it up basically everywhere.  Until he learns how to take care of the ball, DeAndre is in for a rude awakening.  He dribbled halfway across the field vs. Colombia (away from goal, it should be noted) before a terrible touch gave Colombia possession in a dangerous position.
