Tim Howard is in danger of ending one of the all-time iron man streaks this weekend.
The 33-year-old goalkeeper has played in 210 successive Premier League matches for Everton, stretching back to when he signed for the club on a permanent basis in 2007. However, Howard picked up a knock during last Tuesday’s FA Cup victory over Oldham, and is currently a doubt to play on Saturday against Reading.
Everton manager David Moyes told reporters ahead of the match that Howard will be a game-time decision. If Howard does not play, he will finish just three matches short of Everton’s all-time successive league appearance record.
While the injury may keep Howard out for this weekend’s match, it’s unlikely that he will miss considerable time, leaving him open for selection for the United States’ two upcoming CONCACAF qualifying matches.
What do you think of this news? Do you see Howard playing on Saturday? Impressed with the streak he’s been able to put together?
