On Saturday, USA battled it out with England in their first World Cup game this year. The match resulted in a 1-1 draw.  The game was intense, heated, and riddled with injuries. One of the most crucial, being that of US Goalkeeper, Tim Howard.

England’s Emile Heskey slid right into Howard’s chest during  goal attempt, and Howard was left in pure agony for a few minutes before he was able to play again. During the game’s half Howard was given a cortisone shot and came out dominating the rest of the 2nd half. He was the man of the game, but his condition for next game is still in question.

The US plays Slovenia this Friday, and it is still uncertain if Howard has a broken rib or a less severe injury. He will have an extensive evaluation later today, which will include X-rays. As one of the world’s most elite goalkeepers he is a crucial part of the US advancing in the tournament.
