The latest edition of the FIFA franchise is being released in October and fans are excited to get their hands on the latest version of the game and play with their favorite players. New England Revolution fans won’t be happy about the latest news.
While some players like Gustavo Bou and Carles Gil got some nice ratings there seems to be one glaring omission. Matt Turner is not a Top 10 goalkeeper in MLS.

One has to wonder what Turner did to deserve such disrespect. As an undrafted rookie in 2016, and presumed third goalkeeper going into the 2018 season, Turner received a surprising starting nod from then head coach Brad Friedel and hasn’t looked back.
Now we can all admit that MLS does in fact have a lot of good goalkeepers but Turner is one of the best. Leaving him out almost seems impossible, and in fact, Turner hasn’t received an increase in his rating since FIFA 18 - when his third keeper rating of 52 was increased to a clearly MLS starter level of 69.
Players such as Bill Hamid, Eloy Room, Andre Blake, and Luis Robles are deserving on the list. They are some of the best in MLS, but so is Turner.
