Two Atlanta United players have been summoned by Tab Ramos for the United States under-20 men’s national team’s latest training camp in preparation for the World Cup that begins in May.
This camp will be held in England from April 3-10. Robinson, who has appeared on the Atlanta United first team bench on a few occasions to begin the season, will miss out on Saturday’s match against Toronto FC.
“All players coming in to this camp have the potential to make our U-20 World Cup final squad, Ramos said. “I am sure that there will be a few players who will be selected for the U20 World Cup based on their performance at this camp.”
Kunga has been lighting it up for the ATLUTD U-18 team this season and now has a huge chance to make a good impression and possibly throw his name into the hat for a spot on the World Cup roster.
The U.S. kickoff the U-20 World Cup on May 22 against Ecuador and will also play Senegal and Saudi Arabia in their Group.
