Matt Turner has proven very, very difficult to beat at the international level, and that was the case once again on Wednesday night as the New England Revolution goalkeeper kept his 12th clean sheet in his 17th international appearance, backstopping the U.S. Men's National Team to a 3-0 win over Morocco at TQL Stadium in Cincinnati.

Turner made eight saves in the friendly, serving as an important part of the USMNT's buildup to the FIFA World Cup in Qatar this winter. A pair of highlights arrived in the 12th minute, when Turner dove to his left to push away a strong attempt from close range, and in the 53rd minute, when he went right to deny a powerful downward header.

Morocco's best chance to break through came in the late stages when the visitors were awarded a (phantom) penalty in the 76th minute, but Selim Amallah's attempt smashed off the crossbar.

Revolution forward Adam Buksa was also in action on the international stage on Wednesday, starting and playing 73 minutes in Poland's 2-1 win over Wales in Group D of the UEFA Nations League.
