Yedlin told Bleacher Report: "It's definitely been a whirlwind. There's not been a lot of time to sit down and pinch myself to make sure it's real.
"It's been pretty wild, but it's been fun. I'm having a great time with it.
"Honestly, I just went out there and said 'relax and do your thing.' [USA manager] Jurgen Klinsmann definitely helped to calm me down a lot. If I make a mistake, I just try to recover on the ball as soon as possible, work hard, create and from that I felt really comfortable and relaxed."
The right-back currently plays for Seattle Sounders in the MLS.
