Antonee Robinson injury: USMNT holds breath on left-back

A little over seven months ago, it seemed for a brief moment that Anthony Robinson had been injured. He just scored a massive goal in the US World Cup qualifiers and celebrated his back brand only to flip the lame one. or At least pretend to pull a lame. The whole thing was a gag, and funny at that. It has since become something of a trend. But there was nothing comical about the very real injury Robinson suffered on Saturday while playing for Fulham, and the left-back’s right ankle suddenly became the most watched end of the US squad with the national team’s World Cup opener exactly 11 weeks away.
