Arena calls on Robles to start against Jamaica

Robles Red Bulls

New York Red Bulls’ record setting goalkeeper Luis Robles is set to start against the Jamaican national team, according to Steven Goff of the Washington Post.

Luis Robles has been the Red Bulls starting goalkeeper since 2012, making 140 consecutive starts in the process. Along the way, he’s tallied 39 shutouts, earning a place in the U.S. Men’s national team pool in the process.

New head coach Bruce Arena has brought in a number of MLS talent that have not been able to see national team minutes in recent years, including former Red Bull Juan Agudelo. Arena replaced Jurgen Klinsmann as head coach of the national team back in November. Since then players familiar to Red Bull fans such as Sacha Kljestan, Luis Robles and Dax McCarty appear to have a better chance of making the starting XI than in previous years.
