Tim Howard was incredible in the US’ 2-1 loss to Belgium at the World Cup on Tuesday. The man tied a World Cup record by making 16 saves in the match. The last time a goalkeeper recorded 16 saves at the World Cup was in 1966. To put things in perspective, the previous high for a US keeper in a World Cup match was 9.
“I don’t think we could have given any more. We left it all out there. We got beat by a really good team,” Howard said in an interview with ESPN after the match.
Below is video of a few of his best saves from the match:
Asked about being under siege constantly throughout the match, Howard said, “that’s what I signed up for.”
