ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The visiting United States Men’s National team soccer roster (USMNT) settled for a draw against the home team Jamaica in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying in Kingston on Tuesday.
The USMNT started strong in the game as Timothy Weah tiptoed through the Jamaican defense to open the scoring for the U.S., finishing from a tight angle after an impressive, unassisted run into the hosts’ penalty area.
However, the USMNT was not able to sustain their momentum and allowed Jamaica to score an equalizer in their game.
One of the members of the USMNT in this qualifying match is Atlanta United FC top defensive specialist Miles Robinson.
Robinson has 14 caps and three goals with the USMNT, earning his senior team debut on Sept. 6, 2019, in a friendly against Mexico. He made his first start and scored his first international goal in a 7-0 win against Trinidad and Tobago on Jan. 31, 2021. 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 to defeat Mexico 1-0. The 24-year-old was also recently named to his first MLS All-Star team and has started 14 of his 15 MLS appearances in 2021.
