Fulham has been flying of late in the English Football League Championship and Tuesday’s rout over Birmingham City saw U.S. men’s national team left back Antonee Robinson get on the scoresheet for the second time this season.

Robinson capped off a 6-2 home win over Birmingham City, scoring the final goal of the club’s third-straight league victory. The left back delivered his second goal of the season and also registered his fourth league assist as Marco Silva’s side ran away with three points at Craven Cottage.

Fulham raced out to a 4-1 halftime advantage as Neeskans Kebano, Tom Cairney and Fabio Carvalho all found the back of the net. A Marc Roberts own goal set the stage for a busy night in London as Fulham would keep its foot on the gas after halftime.

Carvalho’s first goal came off of a great cross from Robinson, who watched as the young forward headed home in the 42nd minute. Carvalho added his second goal of the match in the 75th minute before Robinson put the icing on the cake as Fulham scored six goals or more in its third-consecutive league match.

Robinson received a pass from Josh Onomah in stoppage time before unleashing a left-footed drive into the bottom-right corner. It was Robinson’s first goal since Fulham’s 4-1 romp over QPR back in mid-October.

Both Robinson and Tim Ream finished the match with 90 minutes each under their belts, helping Fulham earn its 16th league victory out of 26 matches.

Fulham will travel to Stoke City on January 22 in its next match before closing out the month against Blackpool on Jan. 29. Robinson will be pushing for involvement in the USMNT’s next slate of World Cup Qualifiers, which will begin on Jan. 27 in Ohio against El Salvador.
