Ajani Fortune called into Trinidad and Tobago National Team
Atlanta United Communications


Atlanta United Academy midfielder Ajani Fortune earned his first call up to the senior Trinidad & Tobago National Team. He will join the squad in Florida ahead of its upcoming friendly on Jan. 31 against the U.S. Menís National Team (7:00 p.m. EST, FS1) at Exploria Stadium in Orlando, Florida.

Fortune, 18, joined the Atlanta United Academy prior to the 2018-19 season. He made 19 appearances with the U-17s that year and scored five goals, while also featuring in three matches with the U-19s. The following season, Fortune played in four matches with the U-19s during the shortened season. Internationally, Fortune has made four appearances with Trinidadís U-17s.

On July 11, 2020, Fortune made his professional debut with ATLUTD 2 against Charleston Battery in the USL Championship. He completed the season with 11 matches played, five of those coming in the starting XI. The midfielder scored his first professional goal on Sept. 12 against The Miami FC. Fortune finished the campaign with 464 total minutes played, 78.3 percent passing and a duel success rate of 48.7 percent.

Fortune could face two familiar faces in the upcoming friendly as George Bello and Miles Robinson also earned call ups for the USMNT. Bello became the first Atlanta United Academy player to earn a call up into the U.S. Menís National Team, while Robinson looks for his third cap.

Excellent interviews Mr Fuentes. The subjects were also quite positive and fresh. Wish we had another game planned even against a US local team, so everyone could get a run out.
