No major surprises - but one name is especially key.

Concacaf announced the provisional rosters all sixteen teams in the 2019 Gold Cup field on Monday. As expected, several Atlanta United players were listed, but one name in particular stands out.

Unsurprisingly, Brad Guzan and Darlington Nagbe were named to the United States 40-man roster, while Romario Williams found himself on Jamaica’s list. All three are Gold Cup veterans and are a good shout to make the final roster when it’s released.

The name that stands out among Atlanta United players is Miles Robinson, who also made the USMNT’s provisional roster. The 22-year-old has shown very well across his appearances with Atlanta this season, settling in beside Leandro Gonzalez Pirez as the club’s primary starting center back tandem and a large part of a defense that’s allowed just 9 goals in MLS play. We’ll see if it’s enough for Gregg Berhalter to give him the final nod in a few weeks.

Final 23-man rosters for each country will be released the first week of June. The USMNT opens group play at Allianz Field in St. Paul, Minn., against Guyana on June 18, while Jamaica host Honduras a day prior to open their Gold Cup journey.
