USA Keeper Tim Howard Sets New World Cup Save Record With Heroic Performance Against Belgium

By Chris Wright

Brazil Soccer WCup Belgium US

Thou shall not pass!

They may well have lost in the end, but USA ‘keeper Tim Howard set an all-time save record by making 16 clear stops against Belgium – the most ever recorded by a goalkeeper in a World Cup game.

In fact, Howard made more saves during the first 90 minutes of the Belgium game than he’d registered during the whole of the group stages.

Elsewhere, Twitter have reported that, of the 9.1 million Tweets that were sent during the USA-Belgium game, a shade over 1.8 million of them directly referenced Howard and his heroic performance – that’s one in every five, or near as damn it.

Oh well, all in a day’s work…

Personally, we’d also like to congratulate Timmy on his post-match promotion…

Thoroughly deserved.
