Gooch was eligible to play for England (due to his English father), the Republic of Ireland (due to Irish mother), or the United States (due to birthright citizenship).

After appearing once for the Republic of Ireland U18 side, Gooch switched allegiance to United States after being called up for United States U20, Gooch made his United States U20 debut on November 15, 2014, in a 1–0 win over Republic of Ireland U21. Gooch represented the United States under-20 team at the 2015 CONCACAF Championship in Jamaica, playing four games as they achieved qualification for the year's World Cup in that category.

On October 2, 2016, Gooch was called up to the senior team for a pair of friendlies against Cuba and New Zealand. Nine days later, he made his debut against New Zealand, replacing Kellyn Acosta for the final 31 minutes of a 1–1 draw at the RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.
