Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard scored an amazing goal on Wednesday versus Bolton in an English Premier League matchup.
Howard, a U.S. National Team goalie, scored the goal from approximately 100 yards out during a 2-1 loss to Bolton. He became only the fourth goalkeeper -- the second American after Brad Friedel did it in 2004 -- in EPL history to score a goal during the match.
After the amazing goal many of Howard's teammates were seen celebrating the rare goal, but Howard remained stoic after the score. After the game he told reporters why he didn't celebrate as heavily as some of his Everton mates.
I was delighted that we were in the lead and would hopefully go on to get three points, but it's not a nice feeling for a keeper. It's really awful actually, Howard told Sky Sports. For the back four and the goalkeepers at both ends, there was an awful wind swirling. You could see everybody was mistiming balls. Defenders were missing clearances that normally they would put up the field. I think the wind is the hardest condition to play in. Snow, rain, sun doesn't matter, but the wind really does play tricks on you.
Howard even went as far as approach Bolton goalkeeper Adam Bogdon after the game to offer his sympathy.
I let him know that I was feeling for him, Howard said. It's not a nice place to be. I've been there before, a long, long time ago, and that was why I didn't celebrate.
Everton managed to lose despite Howard's fantastic goal and the return of midfielder Landon Donovan, on loan from the Los Angeles Galaxy of the MLS.
