Matt Turner was largely a spectator for Friday night's comfortable 5-0 win over Grenada to kick off Concacaf Nations League play, but still the record books will show the New England Revolution goalkeeper registered his 13th clean sheet in his 18th appearance for the U.S. Men's National Team.

Turner wasn't forced to make a save as the Americans outshot Grenada 25-3 while maintaining almost 70 percent of the possession, with the FC Dallas duo of Jesús Ferreira (four goals) and Paul Arriola (one goal) doing all the damage in the attacking end of the field at Q2 Stadium in Austin, Texas.

Friday night's game was the USMNT's last on home soil before the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, where the Americans will face Wales (Nov. 21), England (Nov. 25), and Iran (Nov. 29) in the group stage.

Turner and the U.S. will play one more game in this international window, continuing Concacaf Nations League play on Tuesday, June 14, when they'll visit El Salvador. The 27-year-old goalkeeper will then return to the Revs for one final match against Minnesota United FC (June 19) before departing for Arsenal.
