New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner has been called in to a U.S. Men’s National Team pre-camp.
This is the first international call-up for Turner, who has been with the Revolution since 2016. Originally a third-string netminder, Turner became a starter in 2018. He later lost the spot, but regained it eleven games into the 2019 season.
Turner was impressive upon his return, collecting an 8-4-7 record with 87 saves and five shutouts. He was the fifth-place finisher in Allstate MLS Goalkeeper of the Year voting.
The 25-year-old recently expressed his interest in suiting up for the USMNT, saying, “It’s something that everybody dreams about when they’re playing this game, is putting on the crest and the colors of their nation. To represent the United States at the national level would be a dream come true.”
Turner will have the opportunity to impress head coach Gregg Berhalter in the pre-camp, which will take place between Nov. 2 and Nov. 9 in Bradenton, FL. The camp, which will include 20 MLS players, is being held before the team’s final two Concacaf Nations League Group A matches against Canada on Nov. 15 and Cuba on Nov. 19.
