Balogun’s commitment to USA a huge coup, says Turner

Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Turner feels teammate Folarin Balogun’s commitment to the USA is a huge coup for the national team.

The former England U21 striker Balogun has committed his international future to Team USA. Balogun was born in New York before his family moved to London.

“I had a pre-season with him at Arsenal and we developed a pretty good relationship but then he left to go on loan,” said Turner at the USA’s California training base. “He scored lots of goals on his loan spell and he has done really, really well.

“It’s someone to be excited about and I think that knowing his personality, he’ll fit in well with the group.

“Flo is a really talented player that’s going to bring a fiery edge to the group, he’s a super competitive guy and that fits in well with the people we have in this locker room already.

“Again, he’s going to be a great addition and creates more competition at that No 9 spot and when you have competition like that it elevates everyone else’s game.”
