At this point, U.S. left back Antonee Robinson knows what to expect from his loved ones for Christmas. "Family members seemed to think I loved puzzles just because I can solve them," says Robinson. "But growing up as a kid I would be reckless. I remember jumping off the sofa learning how to do a backflip. Not really a formal way of doing it."
That backflip served as his goal celebration when he scored his first U.S. goal, in last year's 4-1 World Cup qualifying win at Honduras.
