The fight for the goal USMNT seems to be a matter of two archers only in the process of Gregg Berhalter, because on the one hand Zack Steffen looking to keep his place as the starting goalkeeper at Qatar 2022, however Matt Turner is aiming to unseat the City keeper and reach the World Cup as the title holder of the United States.
Nevertheless, one of the goalkeepers looking to enter the fight to become the USMNT goalkeeper is the young Gabriel Slonina, who at 17 years of age has shown his great quality in the MLS with Chicago Fire, although so far he has not received the opportunity he hopes with Team USA in higher categories.

It should be noted that Slonina has been part of the youth categories of the United Statesbut with the team led by Gregg Berhalter he has not had a chance, which opens the possibility that Poland, the other team to which he has the right to be called up, will call him.
According to reports from Tom Bogert from MLSsoccer.com, The Polish National Team plans to summon Sloninaalthough at the moment it is unknown if the intention of the American youth is to accept the call or wait for a possible call from the USMNT.
Nevertheless, According to the Polish coach, Czeslaw Michnniewicz, Slonina would be interested in accepting the proposal of the Polish national team to be part of the Nations League call UEFA where they will face Belgium, Wales and the Netherlands.
“I handed him the national team jersey with the number one on it. Slonina was very proud and touched by our conversation. He is very interested in playing in our squad. We know that the United States is also tempting him. I think we are going in the right direction for him to represent us”, explained the Polish coach.
In this way, it is expected that in the coming weeks the American goalkeeper will make a decision about which team he will represent in the future. Well, on the one hand, he maintains the dream of playing a World Cup with the USMNT, a situation that could happen in 2026, while with Poland it could become one of the surprises for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
