Atlanta United’s Miles Robinson has staked his claim as one of the most consistent and steady defenders in MLS throughout the 2019 campaign. He may now get a chance to test himself on an international level.
Robinson has been named to the U.S. men’s national team 26-man roster for its upcoming friendlies against Mexico at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. on September 6 and against Uruguay at Busch Stadium in St. Louis on September 10. The 22-year-old, who has developed rapidly toward the tail end of last season and has taken his opportunities head-on as part of Frank de Boer’s starting backline, could potentially see his first senior team cap after registering 10 combined appearances with the U.S. U-20 and U-23 teams.
Joining Robinson on the roster is goalkeeper Brad Guzan. With three younger keepers called up alongside him, Guzan could be in line to see his first action since Wayne Rooney’s testimonial match with England last November.
