ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The dream of United States Men’s National team soccer (USMNT) to get a slot in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is now within reach.
On February 2 at Allianz Field in St. Paul, Minnesota, the home team USMNT beat the visiting Honduras team 3-0.
Midfielder Weston McKennie, defender Walker Zimmerman and forward Christian Pulisic provided the winning goals for USMNT.
The USMNT will wrap up this World Cup qualifying cycle with three matches during the March international window, facing Mexico in Mexico City on March 24, taking on Panama in Orlando, Fla. on March 27 before closing the Final Round of World Cup qualifying at Costa Rica in San Jose on March 30.
Two members of the Atlanta United FC have made it once again to the USMNT roster.
Brooks Lennon and Miles Robinson have been named to the USMNT roster by manager Gregg Berhalter for three Concacaf World Cup Qualifying matches.
Lennon, 24, recently made his senior team debut against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Dec. 18, starting the match and playing 62 minutes. He’ll make his World Cup Qualifying debut if he appears in a match during this window. Overall on the U.S. Youth circuit, Lennon earned four caps and scored four goals with the U.S. U-23s, 17 caps and seven goals with the U-20s and nine caps and one goal with the U-18s.
Robinson, 24, has 15 caps and three goals with the USMNT, earning his senior team debut on Sept. 6, 2019, coming on as a substitute in a friendly against Mexico. Robinson started all six matches and scored two goals at the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup where he helped the U.S. secure five clean sheets and scored the game-winning goal in the final as the U.S. beat Mexico 1-0. He started six World Cup Qualifiers in 2021 and was nominated for U.S. Soccer Male Player of the Year.
