Eddie Robinson (born June 19, 1978 in Orlando, Florida) is an American soccer player who currently plays for Houston Dynamo in Major League Soccer.





Robinson played college soccer at University of North Carolina from 1996 to 2000, finishing his career with four goals and eight assists in 73 games.


After graduating, he was selected 20th overall in the 2001 MLS SuperDraft by the San Jose Earthquakes. Eddie saw very little playing time in the Quakes backline during his rookie year, appearing in only one game. However, in 2002, he was a fixture on the Quakes back line, due to a rash of injuries suffered by Earthquakes defenders Troy Dayak and Jeff Agoos. He proved to be quite effective in set pieces due to his large vertical leap.

Although Eddie has won two MLS Cups with the Earthquakes, in 2001 and 2003, he has struggled greatly to stay healthy. Right hamstring problems limited him to 13 games in 2003, and he missed most of the 2004 season due to a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring. He became a starter in 2005. Along with the rest of his Earthquakes teammates, Robinson moved to Houston for the 2006 season.


Robinson earned his first cap for the United States on January 19, 2008 in a friendly against Sweden. He scored his first international goal in the 2-0 victory.[1]
