New England goalkeeper Matt Turner, midfielder Sebastian Lletget and defender DeJuan Jones will all get to spend a couple of weeks in Phoenix, Arizona for the United States Men’s National Team’s January Preparation Camp.

Turner, 27, owns a 10-1-2 record and nine shutouts across 13 starts with the United States, all of which came in 2021. His 13 caps in 2021 are the most by a USMNT goalkeeper in a debut year, while his nine shutouts are a new program record for a calendar year.
The Revs goalkeeper has started five World Cup Qualifiers during the current campaign in addition to six starts in the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup, in which he was named the tournament’s Best Goalkeeper.
Lletget, who joined New England via trade from the LA Galaxy in December 2021, has been capped 33 times by the United States Men’s National Team since his debut for the Stars and Stripes under Bruce Arena in 2017. The 29-year-old has scored eight international goals at the senior level, and in 2021, he totaled four goals in 16 caps and helped capture the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup title.MORE NEWS: 16-Year-Old Noel Buck Embracing Every Challenge As He Looks To Make His Mark With Revolution
