The best US soccer export: Goalkeepers

All three US goalkeepers playing this weekend came away as winners with Tim Howard being the pick in Everton’s win over West Ham, 2-0. Marcus Hahnemann, Reading’s sentinel played a key role in their win against Bolton, 1-0. Brad Freidel was his usual implacable self in the Blackburn goal against Fulham, that they won 2-0.
Reading is 6th, Everton 7th, and Blackburn is making a concerted effort to get clear of relegation and is presently 14th.
Howard’s brilliant keeping kept out a sure goal from Lee Bowyer in the 18th minute.

  1. Americans have always taken pride in their goalkeeping, from Shep Messing, Olympics (’72) goalkeeper to being in the net, for the likes of legends Beckenbauer and Pele at the NY Cosmos; the Americans have a tradition to build. It has been a strong forte for the USA, in their history of upset wins in the World Cup, from ’50 to the wins against Portugal and Mexico in ’02. It is no surprise that foreign leagues are standing in line to recruit American netminders.
