MLS Cup Playoffs: Arlington’s Miles Robinson injured on international duty; can Atlanta withstand losing him for next weekend?

Arlington native — and Atlanta United FC center back — Miles Robinson has left the U.S. men’s national team camp following Friday’s 7-0 CONCACAF Nations League win over Cuba with an apparent left hamstring strain.

The Washington Post’s Steven Goff reported Saturday that the former Arlington High Spy Ponder injured himself during post-match training.

He was not a participant in the United States’ win, and USMNT coach Gregg Berhalter did not name a replacement for Tuesday night’s Nations League tilt with Canada in Toronto.
