FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner has been called in to the United States Men’s National Team for the opening trio of 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifying matches. Turner, who was named the Most Valuable Player of Wednesday night’s MLS All-Star Game, will report to camp on Sunday before the United States begins the final round of its Concacaf qualifying campaign with matches away at El Salvador on Sept. 2 (CBS Sports Network, Paramount+, and NBC Universo), home against Canada on Sept. 5 (FS1, UniMas, and TUDN), and away at Honduras on Sept. 8 (Paramount+ and NBC Universo).

Turner, 27, has been capped seven times by the U.S. Men’s National Team, including all six starts at the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup to help the U.S. lift its first title in the competition since 2017. Turner was named the Best Goalkeeper at the Gold Cup and was named to the tournament’s Best XI, allowing just one goal in six games. His five clean sheets in the tournament matched a Gold Cup record. Turner, who has yet to allow a goal from the run of play in seven USMNT starts, currently owns a 416-minute shutout streak at the international level. In his last international appearance, Turner tallied five saves in the Gold Cup Final against Mexico, for which he earned his second Man of the Match honor of the tournament.

The Park Ridge, N.J. native and 2021 MLS All-Star Team selection has led the Revolution to an 11-2-4 record in 17 starts this season, his sixth as a pro. His 11 wins are a career high and include an unbeaten 8-0-1 mark at Gillette Stadium in 2021. Turner enters this weekend’s MLS contest at New York City FC riding a 12-game unbeaten streak across his time with the Revolution and U.S. Men’s National Team. For his career, Turner is the Revolution’s all-time leader in save percentage (.724) and win percentage (.571), while ranking third in club annals with 35 wins and 20 shutouts in MLS.

 The first-place Revolution return to MLS action this Saturday, August 28 when they travel to Yankee Stadium to face New York City FC. The match kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET on TV38, myRITV, 98.5 The Sports Hub, and 1260 AM Nossa Radio.
