Tim Howard Biography

Timothy Matthew "Tim" Howard is an American soccer player who plays as a goalkeeper for English club Everton and the United States national team. He made his international debut against Honduras on the U-17 squad. Howard was granted a position on the Imperials in 1997. In May of that year, a month before graduating from high school, Howard played for the Imperials in his first professional game. After only six appearances with the USISL's North Jersey Imperials, Tim Mulqueen, who at the time was the New York/New Jersey MetroStar's goalkeeper coach, brought Howard up from the Imperials to the MetroStars. Howard was victorious in his MLS debut with the MetroStars on August 18, 1998, making five saves in a 4–1 win over Colorado at Giants Stadium. In 2001, he became the youngest player to win the MLS Goalkeeper of the Year award and was named to the MLS All-Star Team. Manchester United paid a $4 million transfer fee to sign Howard in the middle of the 2003 MLS season. Howard joined Everton on loan for the 2006–07 season and made his debut for the club against Watford on the opening day of the season. He signed a permanent deal with the club in February 2007 for a fee reported to be worth around £3 million. During the 2011–12 season, Howard scored his first goal in professional football in a 2–1 defeat to Bolton Wanderers. Howard first represented the United States national team in 2002 and was an unused substitute for the 2006 World Cup. He later established himself as first-choice and started all of the United States' games at the 2010 World Cup as they reached the Round of 16.
