Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Ethan Horvath has been rewarded for some fine Luton Town form with a place in the latest USA squad.

Games against Japan and Saudi Arabia are on the horizon and Horvath now has a big opportunity.

He’s been named alongside New York City FC stopper Sean Johnson and Arsenal newcomer Matt Turner.

As a result, Horvath could be eyed as the first choice for the forthcoming games for the USA.

The 27-year-old signed for Forest on a free transfer ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

He spent the promotion-winning season as a backup to Brice Samba and made just 11 appearances.

With that in mind, first-team football was always in his sights after promotion and Luton came calling.

So far during 2022/23, he’s made nine appearances for Nathan Jones’ team and kept two clean sheets.

Horvath will see this loan as one that is paying dividends with the custodian now in pole position for a shot at the USA gloves.

The Forest man could also have England in his sights. His country are in a group with the Three Lions, Iran and Wales at the World Cup.

The Luton stopper has been in fine form and it’s no surprise that he’s forced his way back into USA reckoning.

Forest will be encouraged to hear that he’s doing well and the Reds will hope he continues to star at Kenilworth Road.

Horvath never let anyone down when he was called upon last season and was perhaps unfortunate not to play more.

The loan move away from the City Ground appears perfect though and he is busy showcasing his credentials.

It would be quite something if he could force his way into the USA team and become the number one goalkeeper for the World Cup.

Next, he might fancy returning to Forest and earning a chance there.
