This was supposed to be Landon Donovan's big day, as he made his debut with Everton of the English Premier League against Bolton. However, it was another American who stole the show, as his teammate and goalie Tim Howard scored only the 4th goal by a goalie in the history of the EPL.
Out of the 4 goalies to score in the EPL, Howard is the 2nd American to do it. So even though the USA has never really been a soccer powerhouse, at least we have that going for us.
Howard has been a fixture on the Team USA club, and now he has joined a pretty elite group across the pond as well.
