Timothy Burke over at Deadspin.com brings us a rarity.

“In the game featuring Landon Donovan’s Everton debut it was another American, goalkeeper Tim Howard, who stole the show, scoring a goal to put his side up 1-0 on Bolton Wanderers.

“It was only the fourth score by a keeper in EPL history, but the second by an American—Brad Friedel scored one in 2004. Peter Schmeichel and Paul Robinson are the other two.”

That’s right, America. Tim Howard.
