Robinson said he thinks his skills would fit well within Berhalther’s preferred tactics where centerbacks are good organizers of the back line and can split opposing lines with passes.
Other centerbacks on the 40-man roster are: Tottenham’s Cameron Carter-Vickers, Club Atlas’ Omar Gonzalez, New York Red Bulls’ Aaron Long, Chelsea’s Matt Miazga and LAFC’s Walker Zimmerman, a Lawrenceville native.
Rosters will be reduced to 23 by the end of the first week of June. The tournament will start June 15 and the championship game will be held in Chicago on July 7.
Robinson has some international experience, making eight appearances with U.S. U20 national team in 2016 and two with the U23s earlier this year.
He and Carter-Vickers have played centerback together for the U20s and U23s.
