If you watched the USA’s 2-nil win vs. Canada last night, you should have a pretty good idea of who the man of the match was. He wears gloves, has a shiny bald head, and answers to “Timmeh!”
Yes, Jozy Altidore got some swag back, putting in the first and setting up the second. But Bob Bradley’s teams tend to lack the ability finish off games with true American ferocity, so Tim Howard was called on to make countless saves. He practically stood on that polished pate of his.
Even Canada’s manager almost had to applaud the herculean effort of the United State’s keeper and commander.
But you shouldn’t be surprised, Timmy does this kind of crazy stuff on the reg. That’s why he’s one of the best keepers in the world and such an integral part of the “fabric” of one of England’s biggest clubs. See how he gets ready and winds down on game day in the Premiership.
