ARSENAL goalkeeper Matt Turner had a first half to forget on his debut against Nurnberg in Germany.
The 28-year-old, who joined from MLS side New England Revolution, started for the Gunners in their pre-season clash against the Bundesliga 2 outfit.
But the USA international failed to impress for his boyhood side after conceding twice in the opening 45 minutes.
Nurnberg took the lead in the 24th minute through Johannes Geis, with his effort from range cannoning off the underside of the bar.
Though replays showed Turner should have done better to keep out the swerving strike as it was right down the middle of the goal.
Just five minutes later, Arsenal conceded again as Kwadwo Duah raced through one-on-one before rifling a shot low into the bottom left corner.
