Turner has injured groin, misses Arsenal’s match at PSV





Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Turner has missed Thursday night’s Europa League game at PSV Eindhoven in another injury concern for the United States men’s national team ahead of the World Cup.

Turner has a tight groin, Arsenal say, and No.1 goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has made his Europa League debut.

Turner, 28, has played just four games since moving to the Gunners last summer from Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution. Arsenal still have one Europa League game ahead of the World Cup, against Zurich on November 3.

Turner was ruled out from February 2 to April 30 after playing for the United States in a World Cup qualifying game against Honduras in St. Paul, Minnesota, on a night when kickoff temperatures was 3 degrees (minus-16 Celsius).

Turner is one of four main contenders for the three goalkeeping spots on the U.S. World Cup roster, which will be announced on November 9. The others are Zack Steffen from Middlesbrough, Ethan Horvath from Luton and Sean Johnson from New York.

Midfielder Tyler Adams missed Leeds’ game against Fulham with an unspecified injury; Leeds manager Jesse Marsch has said he is questionable for Saturday’s game at Liverpool.

Back in the World Cup after missing the 2018 tournament, the United States open against Wales on November 21, face England in a Black Friday match four days later and close out group play on November 29 against Iran.
