U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team goalkeeper Cody Cropper will see some important minutes in the English Championship in the coming weeks.
Cropper will be the starting goalkeeper for Milton Keynes Dons for the remainder of the club’s 2015-16 season, as first-choice netminder David Martin will be sidelined with a fractured hand.
“Cody came in as the number 2 but he’s the number 1 now and he has to take that opportunity,” MK Dons manager Karl Robinson said. “I’ve got tremendous faith in him – he’s a good young goalkeeper.”
The 23-year-old has earned four league starts this campaign for MK Dons, which currently sits in the drop zone in the Championship. Four points behind fourth-to-last Fulham on the table, MK Dons only has seven games left to avoid relegation.
What do you think of this development? Glad to see Cropper earn more minutes? What do you expect from him in 2016?
