U.S. men’s national team coach, Gregg Berhalter, has sent a message to his goalkeepers ahead of the World Cup.
The Americans have a lot to do in terms of finalising the group they will take with them to Qatar for the winter tournament.
The USA will take on England, Wales, and Iran in their group, with only the top two progressing to the knockout stages.
Matt Turner and Zack Steffen are the two keepers vying for a starting spot in Qatar.
“Every roster spot is going to be carefully considered and what’s worked in the past may not work now,” Berhalter said of his goalkeepers, per Goal.
“I’ve seen Spain where they’ve taken a really old goalkeeper because he means a lot to the group. I see other teams take young goalkeepers and for us, nothing’s set in stone right now.
“What we know is we want guys that can perform up to the level and be the guys that are bought into the team ethos and fit the culture of our group. We’ll make a decision based on those two parameters and hopefully we get it right.”
