Fulham defender Antonee Robinson is ready to help Fulham to Premier League safety and secure a long-term starting role in the USA team by impressing in their upcoming friendlies.

The Milton Keynes-born USMNT defender is looking to set-up an extended career at the highest level both internationally and domestically by ending the season on a double high.

Robinson is eligible to represent The Stars and Stripes thanks to his father’s nine-year stay across the pond which allowed Marlon to secure U.S. citizenship for himself and his children.

The 23-year-old ended any doubt over his international future by turning down England's Under-21 invitation in 2018, and has gone on to make eight senior outings as the 2026 World Cup draws ever closer.

At club level, Robinson did enough at Wigan after leaving Everton to earn a move to newly-promoted Fulham, and has shown glimpses of his ability with an eye on a concrete first-team birth.

Speaking to the media before USA friendlies against Jamaica and Northern Ireland, Robinson has outlined his experience in battling relegation and why it feels different this time around.

“Obviously I started with Bolton and then had two seasons with Wigan which was tough as well, but with Fulham I feel like it’s slightly different.

“At the start of the season we were getting written off pretty early, everyone outside the team felt they we were certain to go down. I personally, and lot of the team, we never felt like that.

“I feel like we knew what we were about and that we were a good team, had good players and that we were going in the right direction with everything we were working on.

“That seems to be bearing fruit at the moment, unless it is impossible for us to stay up we will keep fighting towards staying up.

“Whether it comes [getting out of the bottom three] over the next few games or on the final day against Newcastle, then we have to battle and that’s what we will do.”
