The U.S. Men’s National Team has had a long pipeline of successful goalkeepers in its history, and perhaps Ethan Horvath will be the next to join that extensive list.

On Friday, Horvath became the first American to ever suit up for Club Brugge when the Belgian side stepped on the field against Charleroi.

The 21-year-old American joined Brugge back in January from Norway’s Molde and hadn’t started a match during that four-month span.

Horvath has risen through the USMNT ranks over the years, earning caps with the Under-20 and U-23 sides before making his first senior team appearance in 2016 against Cuba.
