Los Angeles Football Club goalkeeper Tyler Miller will be returning to his club this week, after he was one of four players released by U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Gregg Berhalter on Tuesday.

Miller, 25, was a surprise call-up by Berhalter for the annual January training camp. One of four GKs called up, alongside Zack Steffen, Sean Johnson and Alex Bono, he was the only one of the quartet who was a first-time call-up. In the end, Berhalter opted to keep Steffen and Johnson for the friendlies against Panama and Costa Rica that will close out the camp.

Miller will now re-join LAFC, who opened their preseason camp on Monday. Currently the only goalkeeper under contract at the club, Miller is projected to be the starter in 2019.

The other two LAFC players at USMNT camp, Walker Zimmerman and Christian Ramirez, are on the roster for the two friendlies and will remain with the National Team. Ramirez is seeking his first senior cap with the U.S.
