Some United States Men’s National Team fans have been full of praise for Antonee Robinson after their 1-0 win against Honduras.
The American earnt his first start for the national team on Friday, and it’s fair to say that he he impressed fans.
The USA supporters were full of praise for the full-back, with one even comparing him to Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the way that he tackles.
Sadly, we didn’t see too much of Robinson at his best for Fulham this term, but his international performance here indicates that there’s a lot more to come from him next season.
It’s easy to see why Robinson caught the eye on international duty, he’s a footballer who is incredibly quick and he’s a great dribbler, and while he is first and foremost a defender, his lung-busting runs make for fantastic viewing.
Here’s what the American fans have been saying about Robinson on social media…
That cross is why Robinson deserves to play

I’d start Antonee Robinson in the final as well over Reggie Cannon..

Antonee Robinson was a bright spot and you pull him off for a Reggie Cannon who promptly passes the ball out of bounds with those fresh legs.

Antonee was one of the best outside backs in the premier league. Not sure why people think he can’t defend, he tackles like wan bissaka

There should be no debate. Antonee Robinson is your starting left back.
