The Arsenal second choice keeper Matt Turner has really shown his worth at the World Cup as he has helped the States to reach the knockout stages in Qatar.
The Gunners Number One Aaron Ramsey may also be at the competition, but Turner has conceded the same amount of goals from open play as Ramsdale has – ZERO!
Matt Turner has played 7 games this season, 4 for Arsenal & 3 for USA at the World Cup. He has kept 5 clean sheets and conceded just 2 goals. Those 2 goals were penalties. Leno called his signing a “political move”. Some of our fans called him trash after one friendly game. Lmao

Against Wales in the opener, Turner made a great save from Ben Davies and it looked like they would take all three points until Gareth Bale took an unstoppable penalty near the end to claim a draw.
Turner also kept England’s mighty array of strikers out with a notable save from Mason Mount, and he also kept a clean sheet against Iran yesterday, to make sure they now face Holland in the Round of 16 on Saturday.
Not only has he had a safe pair of hands but he has been applauded for his excellent distribution skills, as shown in the lead up to yeterday’s winner against Iran from Christian Pulisic….

When he arrived from America, there were doubts amongst many Arsenal fans that he had the experience or quality to play as a replacement to Ramsdale, but I think he has now put those doubts to rest. Don’t you?
