ATLANTA - Atlanta United defender Miles Robinson has been called-up to the U.S. Men's National Team roster for the upcoming Concacaf Nations League finals. The U.S. will face Mexico in the semifinal on Thursday, June 15 (10 p.m. ET; Paramount+) at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Robinson has 21 caps and three goals with the USMNT. The defender returned to the national team in March after last season's injury. He started and played the full 90 minutes against El Salvador in a 1-0 victory that secured the top seed in the semifinal round. Robinson earned his senior national team debut in September 2019 in a friendly against Mexico. The Arlington, Mass. native 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 11 of 14 World Cup Qualifiers this past cycle, helping the USMNT qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The Concacaf Nations League semifinals and final will be played in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium. The other semifinal sees Canada take on Panama. The third place playoff is scheduled for June 18 (6 p.m. ET) while the winners of the semifinals will face each other in the Nations League Final at 8:30 p.m. ET. The USMNT won the inaugural Concacaf Nations League title in 2021 after defeating Mexico 3-2 in the final.
