Chilean national team calls up Robbie Robinson (uh-oh!)

[4]
Aug 24, 2021, 11:27 AM

Robinson is apparently a dual-national (his mom is Chilean), and while Robinson was named to the USMNT's provisional roster for the Gold Cup he was not named to the final roster; he's got a few guys ahead of him in the USA's pecking order.

Chile is clearly trying to steal him. They're a legit power in world soccer; they've been to the last several World Cups, have finished very well (ahead of the USA in most Cups), and while they're presently ranked just 20th in the world to the USA's 10th they're generally considered the stronger national team.

So this is a big deal...and while it might help Robinson's career it's also a potential blow to the USA's national team if the Nats end up losing out on him.

I like Robbie, but with the amount of talent the US has right now, I think we’ll be fine without him.

At striker?

No. Gotta argue there.

That's the one place we're really still hunting for answers, and Robinson looks like a potential answer. When Gyasi Zardes is still one of the top three strikers for the USA and getting regular callups you are not "fine" at the spot.

Sure, if he was a mid or a defender or a keeper, I'd be like: okay. But along with Ricardo Pepi he's probably one of the top two young American strikers in MLS right now...and we're now in danger of losing both to foreign rivals.

Unless Robbie can kick a 50 yard field goal from the right hash and has a few years of eligibility left, should we really care. Soccer is a sport for sissies.

Well, he's a Clemson guy, he was the first overall pick in the MLS Draft a couple years back, and oh, yeah, he's in consideration for not one but two World Cup squads...and the World Cup draws something like ten times the viewing audience of a Super Bowl.

But hey. I'm glad of your opinion. Maybe you should share it with Dabo.

Well, I dunno, considering his own godson Tanner Tessmann is on the USMNT now, and is playing for Venezia in Italy's Serie A, one of the toughest and most respected soccer leagues in the world. And he chose FC Dallas's soccer academy over a scholarship kicking at Clemson.

Like I said, share your learned opinion with him, and tell me how that conversation goes.

I can only imagine the disappointment Dabo felt when a skinny legged kid named Tanner chose to go to some soccer camp in Texas rather than playing football for the best team in the nation. Could he even clear the bar from 40 yards without a tee?

I get it. You love soccer. It’s just this is a football message board and when I was in school, soccer players spent more time on their hair than they did in the weight room. We even had one that shaved his legs!

So I’m a fool for stating my opinion that soccer is weak on a TigerNet FOOTBALL (the real one, not soccer) message board? Why don’t you and Pele take it back to the Soccer board? I bet the two of you can’t go 5 minutes at a bar without mentioning soccer while sipping on your IPA’s. Worse than cyclists.

I’m embarrassing myself? Did you just not create a new account so you could post seven times about a soccer player on a Clemson FOOTBALL message board. Are you Robbie, his dad, or his partner?

This is exactly why people consider soccer fans to be a cult.

Says the guys who is posting duplicate blank messages in a forum.

In all seriousness though, if I send you a Clemson football helmet that has “Soccer: No longer just for wussies” on it, can you have Robbie sign it and mail it back to me? It would be an honor to add that to my Clemson football memorabilia collection.

I saw this last night. What I have yet to see if he has/is going to accept the call-up.

We have lots of dual-nationals that have yet to decide who they are committing to. Lately, we have been on the wrong side of the decisions. We need to change that.

He has already accepted. Many of the terrific Clemson people, including many of his close friends on the football team and basketball team and of course the soccer team and alumni have sent him congratulatory notes.????
