After USA's exhilarating World Cup game against Belgium, Tim Howard was an American hero and helped the sport  grow massively in the States. In possibly the game of the tournament, the Everton keeper made a record breaking 15 saves and put in an inspired performance in an eventual 2-1 defeat in extra

time. The mammoth performance was not a surprise to fans of the Premier League, who have witnessed the bearded keeper regularly make his presence felt to help Everton develop into one of the top teams in the league.
