Update on Condition of Tim Howard
June 14, 2010
During the U.S. Men's National Team opening match of the 2010 FIFA World Cup on June 12 against England, Howard took a boot from forward Emile Heskey to his right side in the 29th minute while making an excellent diving clearance on a dangerous cross. Howard stayed down on the play for three minutes, but returned to action to help the USA earn a 1-1 draw and Man of the Match honors.
The U.S. will next face Slovenia on June 18 in Johannesburg before finishing Group C play against Algeria on June 23 in Tshwane/Pretoria.
