The United States hasn't been threatened too much by Canada, but when they finally did, Tim Howard was there to save them. it's not the first time that Howard has saved the U.S. and won't be the last, but this one was big to keep the Americans ahead, 2-0. As good as it was for Howard, it was unfortunate for Ali Gerba, who has his shot saved and it was a great shot too.
Gerba got a ball played to him on the right and despite being 25 yards from goal, he did not hesitate to take a shot. With the shot he got off, there was no reason for Gerba to hesitate. The striker ripped one towards the far post. It was a bullet that looked bound for the upper corner, but Howard was able to get a full stretch to deny Gerba and keep the United States ahead in the 69th minute.
