Tim Howard, USA Goalkeeper, Suffers Hit To Chest Vs. England In World Cup

Around the thirtieth minute of Saturday's USA-England World Cup, USA goalkeeper Tim Howard caught spikes to the chest.

While scrambling for a loose ball, Howard dove head-first, and his chest met the foot of England's Emile Heskey. After remaining on the ground for a couple of minutes, Howard stood up and remained in the game. Hopefully for the United States, the injury won't adversely affect Howard's ability to protect the goal.

As of the 36th minute, England maintains a 1-0 lead over USA.

Here's a view of the hit:
