Robinson available for Wigan after three month absence


After spending three months recovering from an ankle injury, Antonee Robinson is available for selection for Wigan Athletic.

The 21-year-old left back will hope to get back into the Latics squad for their EFL Championship match on Saturday against Rotherham United. Robinson underwent a successful surgery back in November which also kept him out of a pair of USMNT friendlies against England and Italy respectively.

Wigan boss Paul Cook confirmed Robinson’s availability for Saturday’s match after appearing in a behind closed doors friendly on Wednesday against Fleetwood Town.

Should they win, it will make it back-to-back victories for Wigan who are currently 19th in the 24-team league.

Robinson has made 15 appearances for Wigan this season after joining on-loan from Everton.


  1. While I do not think he is an immediate answer, John Nelson form UNC, now FC Dallas is the best left back I’ve seen play for the US youth national teams. While predicting the future is always tricky, I think he will at least be in the conversation in a couple years.

    He reads the game well, never gets caught out of position (meaning he does not seem to suffer the deadly habit of falling asleep for parts of the game), has the ability to get forward and crosses well. His lack of size and relative inexperience at the professional level are marks against him, but experience can be gained and outside backs do not have to be big, just fast.

  2. With all of the questions surrounding our left back position why are we not trying to lure Jeremy Toljan to the USMNT? Just loaned from Dortmund to Celtic. Would be the answer for us.

    • Not for a lack of trying heโ€™s turned us down in the past but seeing as the German national team is becoming more and more out of the reach he might change his mind
