Not good news for Atlanta United on Friday

How Atlanta United’s players on international duty fared on Friday:

Pity Martinez: Started as a winger, as he has for Atlanta United, and played the first half of Argentina’s loss to Venezuela. He suffered a hamstring injury. Atlanta United had no updates on Martinez’s condition. The injury is another setback in what has been a disappointing 2019.

Josef Martinez: Came on in the second half for Venezuela, won a penalty kick and converted it in a 3-1 win.

Andrew Carleton: Came on in the second half for the U.S. U-20s and earned an assist in a 2-2 draw with France.

Miles Robinson: Didn’t start for the U.S. U-23s in a 2-0 loss to Egypt.

Hector Villalba: Didn’t play in Paraguay’s 1-0 loss to Peru.

In other news, former manager Gerardo Martino led Mexico to a 3-1 win over Chile in San Diego in his first game in charge.
