Zack Steffen is a goalkeeper for the Manchester City club and the United States national team.
He played two seasons at the Maryland Terrapins before signing with Manchester City. While he is currently on loan, you can still catch him in the United States national team.
He went on to join the Philadelphia Union’s youth academy, and then played college soccer for Maryland, where he won the MLS Cup in 2011. He began his professional soccer career with SC Freiburg.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound goalie played every minute for the Terrapins during his first two seasons at Maryland. He also led Maryland to the College Cup Final in 2014.
Before leaving college, Steffen was already a highly regarded soccer prospect. His first season at Maryland saw him lead the Terps to a conference title and the College Cup final.
Zack Steffen is the back-up goalkeeper for Manchester City. The former Fortuna Dusseldorf goalkeeper spent a year on loan with the club and was a key part of the team’s success.
Steffen, from Coatesville, Pennsylvania, has been on loan at Middlesbrough this season. He played nine times for Manchester City last season.
The United States is expected to name its squad on Nov. 9. Zack Steffen is a leading candidate for a spot on the roster. But he is facing stiff competition from Matt Turner, who signed with Arsenal.
