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.
"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."
