As revealed by Bolton News journalist Marc Iles, Bolton Wanderers defender, Antonee Robinson, is set to earn his first call up to the USA first team side.

The on loan Everton left back, is set to join up with the USA first team to face Paraguay in North Carolina (my favourite state) on 27th March.

Antonee Robinson has been capped at USA U18 level, playing once in 2014.

Robinson has so far played twenty-nine times for Wanderers this season, contributing more assists than any other Wanderer.

The player known as ‘Jedi’ has flourished for Bolton this season, having joined the club in the Summer as a virtual unknown.

Having shown attacking flair, Robinson has vastly improved his defensive game, shining in a solid Wanderers defence.

One former Wanderers USA player, Stuart Holden, has already stated on twitter how happy he is to see a Bolton player back in the USA team:

Antonee Robinson clearly has a big future in the game, and this call up is a great reward for a fantastic season.

Congratulations, and let’s hope Jedi can make his debut at WakeMed Soccer Park a week on Tuesday.
