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.
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:
Interesting report here from UK- @OfficialBWFC (on loan from @Everton) LEFT BACK Antonee Robinson has been called up to USMNT for game vs Paraguay. Great to see a Wanderer in the mix!! https://t.co/1PkQuZUerx— Stuart Holden (@stuholden) March 18, 2018
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.
