Tim Howard (USA)

When naysayers claim that the U.S. has not produced any male soccer greats, there is one man that always proves them wrong: Tim Howard. A goalkeeper who recently played a record-making 100 international games, Howard has successfully stopped goals from Argentina’s Lionel Messi and, just as impressively, held top-ranked Spain at bay in last year’s Confederations Cup. The 35-year-old from New Jersey spends the regular season as starting goalie for Everton in England. (Photo: Mark Runnacles/Getty Images)
