The Five Stripes will host Cincinnati on Wednesday. Robinson shouldn’t miss any of Atlanta United’s matches because the U.S. games are scheduled during a FIFA window in which the MLS is off.
Robinson is out of contract with Atlanta United at season’s end. The club made a max-TAM contract offer to Robinson last season. He has yet to accept. He has said several time this season that he is gambling on himself with regard to his next contract and/or club.
Robinson was one of three MLS-based players who were called into the U.S. team by manager Gregg Berhalter.
“We have a long-term strategic approach, with two of the principles being strong rosters and maintaining continuity,” Berhalter said in a statement from U.S. Soccer. “We are thrilled to have a number of core players in this group while also being able to introduce some new faces to the senior team. Uzbekistan and Oman are types of teams we could face in the World Cup, so it’s an important opportunity to gain that experience.”
