Matt Turner’s quick rise from college to Qatar

From Tony Meola to Brad Guzan, Kasey Keller to Tim Howard, it always seems like the Stars have had an absolute rock in front of the goal. Further, Matt Turner (28-year-old player) recently came out of the woodwork to snatch the No. 1 jersey from competitors Ethan Horvath and Zack Steffen. He has been poised to lead the side from the back of Gregg Berhalter’s.

For the 2022 World Cup, Gregg Berhalter opted to give Matt the No. 1 kit; it’s the latest string of positive developments for the talented shot-stopper.

Matt’s development resembles a physically gifted football or basketball player rather than a soccer star. He started playing the sports at 16, and his ability was clear for all to see; after 2 years of formal playing, Matt earned a spot on Division I minnow Fairfield. Matt, as a sophomore, gave away this howler and even bided his time on the bench.

After his college graduation, he went undrafted in the MLS SuperDraft. However, Matt bagged a tryout with the New England Revolution. During this time, he earned enough of a professional deal as the team’s third-string net-minder.

By the end of 2019, Matt was the Revs’ starting ‘keeper, and by 2020, he napped his 1st call-up to the senior national team. 

Matt’s strong showings in goal for country and club. In 2022, he signed a deal with Premier League side Arsenal; and despite not appearing in the league yet, Matt has impressed everyone in limited minutes, allowing just 1 goal in 4 Europa League games.
