Rio Ferdinand says on MOTD he thinks Tim Howard & USA would have won on penalties [Video]
Tim Howard’s performance for the USA against Belgium had a lot of people gushing and the pundits on Match of the Day were no different.
It might seem a tad pointless to speak hypothetically but Rio Ferdinand went ahead and did it anyway by suggesting that the USA would have won on penalties had they held out in extra-time.
Of course, he might be forgetting that Thibaut Courtois of Belgium isn’t half bad either but when it’s your night and all that.
In the end, it wasn’t for Tim Howard. But, while he didn’t win the World Cup, he did win the hearts of many football fans worldwide. Not a bad consolation.
