  • Evening Edition: What's in the news ...

    1. The USA will be without Jozy Altidore for Concacaf Nations League matches against Cuba and Canada. The Toronto FC forward was forced to withdraw following an injury suffered in Sunday's MLS regular-season finale against Columbus. No replacement was named for Altidore, leaving the USA with Josh Sargent and Gyasi Zardes as the two center forwards.

    2. Atlanta United signed defender Miles Robinson to a multi-year contract extension that will keep him under contract through the 2023 season. Robinson was selected with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 SuperDraft but did not break into the Five Stripes' starting lineup until this season. His strong play at center back earned him his first call-up to the U.S. national team for which he debuted against Mexico in September.
