Team USA goaltender Tim Howard made a record 16 saves at the World Cup game between the US and Belgium, but couldn’t save the American team from being knocked out in the 2-1 Belgian win.
Did you know:
- Tim Howard is HUNGARIAN! Tim was born in New Jersey to an African-American father and a native Hungarian mother named Fekete Eszter! He is a dual citizen of USA and Hungary, but unfortunately, aside from a few words, he doesn’t speak Hungarian. Szeretünk téged, Tim! Hajrá magyarok!
- Tim Howard is a CHRISTIAN. Tim has spoken about his Christian faith, saying: “The most important thing in my life is Christ. He’s more important to me than winning or losing or whether I’m playing or not. Everything else is just a bonus.”
- Tim Howard has Tourette Syndrome, an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
- Tim is 35 years old and has been on the US national team since 2002. I don’t know if this was his last world cup, but after this performance today, he seems like he is at the top of his game!

So you discredit that he has a father that is not Hungarian? He is also African American. Give the black man some mad props too. 🙂
Okay. One more reason to love Tim Howard: He is African-American. And he speaks English really well.

Oh, because’s he’s Hungarian? **racist!**

Oh, yeah… I guess I played the race card too soon 🙂
