The second FIFA international window of the year is here, running from June 12-20, which means players are receiving callups to play for their home countries. Six players from Atlanta United have been called up to play international soccer during June. We'll be keeping track with them right here, so here's how to watch and follow along with the 5-Stripes during this international break:
Robinson is back with the U.S. men's national team after making his highly anticipated return to international play earlier this year. On March 28, the center back played 90 minutes in what was his first international match since rupturing his Achilles tendon during the 2022 MLS season. The 1-0 win over El Salvador secured a return to the Concacaf Nations League Final Four for the U.S. Robinson has 21 caps and three goals with the USMNT.
On Thursday, the U.S. beat Mexico 3-0 in the Concacaf Nations League semifinal. Robinson played a full 90 minutes. The USMNT now hasn’t given up a goal in Robinson’s last four starts against Mexico. Next, the Atlanta United center back will look to lead the USMNT to a win over Canada on Sunday in the CNL final.
