No one expected Earl Edwards Jr. to be the starting goalkeeper for the first two matches of the 2022 season, but that hasn’t stopped him from looking great in net.
Edwards Jr recorded the first clean sheet of his MLS career on Saturday afternoon as New England was victorious in its home opener.
“I’m excited,” the goalkeeper said on the field after the match. “I wanted to go get my daughter because this is very much so who I do it for, my kids, my family. So to earn a shutout, have Bruce break the record as well, just a really cool moment.
