Antonee Robinson made his international debut in the early hours of Tuesday morning, completing 90 minutes as the USA ran out 3-0 winners over Bolivia.

Robinson, who spent last season on loan at Bolton from Everton, received his first call-up for March's friendly against Paraguay. He failed to make it onto the field on that occasion, but he took his second chance on a comfortable evening for Dave Sarachan's experimental young side.

After a frustrating opening half hour at the Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, Pennsylvania, the States broke the deadlock on 37 minutes when a corner from Joe Corona was headed back across goal and into the far corner by Walker Zimmerman.

Joshua Sargent doubled their advantage seven minutes after the restart, pouncing on a mistake from Bolivia goalkeeper Guillermo Vizcarra before slotting home.

The scoring was completed shortly before the hour, with Robinson bursting forward down the left-hand side and crossing for Timothy Weah to slide in from close range.

The USA won't be at the FIFA World Cup in Russia but are heavily involved in friendly action as other countries prepare for the tournament. They return to action on Saturday when they face the Republic of Ireland in Dublin, before travelling to France seven days later.
