Atlanta United received some rare good news today, as center back Miles Robinson was selected to represent the MLS All Stars against the Liga MX All Stars on Aug. 25. This will be Robinson’s first ever MLS All Star appearance.
The four-year pro has been the Five Stripes’ best and most consistent defender over the past three seasons. Robinson has made 11 appearances and started 10 matches this season, anchoring Atlanta’s back line. And he showed the world what he was capable of at the international level after an outstanding Gold Cup performance for the USA that included the game winning goal in the final against Mexico.
Atlanta fans have known exactly what Robinson brings to the table for some time. After not playing much his first two MLS seasons, Robinson has shown to be excellent 1v1 defender with elite speed and consistent passing since.
Well done, Miles. Now go show everyone we were right to praise you all along.
