The NYCFC goalkeeper has made the US’s final cut

MLS: New York City FC at Montreal Impact Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier today, the USMNT announced their final 23-man roster for the upcoming CONCACAF Gold Cup. Among the names listed on it is New York City FC goalkeeper Sean Johnson.

The 30-year-old netminder has made 7 total appearances for the Stars & Stripes since his international debut in 2011. Johnson made his first-ever start for the States in the 2013 Gold Cup, in which he logged a 1-0 clean sheet against Costa Rica.

Current coach Gregg Berhalter seems to have a penchant for selecting MLS players to his roster, meaning there is a chance that we could see SeanJohn in net for national team. And we seriously hope he does bits.

Back here in New York, goalkeeping duties will be held — for now — by either veteran backup Brad Stuver or MLS SuperDraft pick Luis Barraza.
