Howard made worthy stops on Davey Arnaud, Conor Casey, Landon Donovan and Fredy Montero in the run of play, and then turned away Arnaud, Davis and Freddie Ljungberg in the tiebreaker to earn MVP honors.

Even though he was technically with the "visitors," the crowd certainly appreciated the U.S. international and all he has accomplished. Howard got a rousing applause during pregame introductions and then another hardy ovation as he accepted the postgame MVP award. Howard was typically modest in the postgame news conference, although Everton coach David Moyes sang his praises.

"Once again, Tim Howard has proved that he's certainly the best goalkeeper in America, and if he keeps going the way he is at the moment, it might not just be in America," Moyes said proudly.
