Tim Howard: The Iron Wall & The One Man Army
It was painful to watch Howard being on the losing team; it looked like the other 10 players of the US team were there to watch Howard playing.
He was prepared for any kind of ball coming to him; he looked like a ninja or Kung Fu master. He kneeled, dove, punched and kicked the ball away from the goal for the duration of the game.
US soccer fans gathered at DC’s Freedom Plaza in Washington chanted enthusiastically “we are on team Howard” as the match ended.
For people who have been Howard’s fan, last night performance did not come as a surprise. The true fans still remember when Howard scored a goal while playing for Everton against Bolton, in the UK league.
In the meantime, they continue to show their admiration Howard. He was momentarily named Secretary of Defense of the United States on Wikipedia. The page was quickly fixed.
