Video: Tim Howard Scores Ridiculous Goal During Everton vs. Bolton

| by Alex Groberman

Becoming only the fourth goalkeeper on record to score in a Premiere League showdown is a big enough accomplishment to earn some headlines. Scoring the goal from 100 yards out as Everton’s Tim Howard did in what eventually ended up being 2-1 loss to Bolton Wednesday night, though, was out-of-this-world remarkable.

Check out this beauty that the American nailed in the 63rd minute:

After the game, Howard played it cool when it came to his nifty highlight.

"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 (via ESPN).

"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."
