USA Vs. Jamaica, 2014 World Cup Qualifying: Hey There, Tim Howard

Tim Howard is still on the field. You might have been convinced otherwise since the United Stats has been so good that the goalkeeper hasn't been involved all match, but when the U.S. needed him he was there. A good shot by Rodolph Austin that appeared to take a bit of a deflection forced Howard into a fine save that reminded us that he is actually playing.

The U.S. has really run into some problems late in this match and it all started with some curious substitutions by Jurgen Klinsmann. Bringing Brek Shea on for Jose Francisco Torres stretched the field some, but really created a problem when Maurice Edu came on for Graham Zusi. That left the U.S. with few players to keep the ball, especially since Clint Dempsey is gassed, and it pushed Danny Williams wide right where he is not very good.

Everything was going great for the U.S. Could Klinsmann ruin that now?
