Winner Tim Howard
2 out of 3

Tim Howard wins! Still wouldn't want to shoot against Jonathan Quick but I would rather avoid Howard who is on a goal-saving high after that record breaking match against Belgium. Quick is one hell of a goalie in the NHL but he is injured and I might be biased but Howard is representing America during this World Cup and he made this whole country proud.
