Tim Howard was phenomenal in goal for the United States during a record-setting World Cup match against Belgium on Tuesday, but he has shown in the past that he can do more than just keep opponents from scoring.

While playing for Everton back in January 2012, the keeper scored on a wind-blown clearance from about 100 yards against Bolton. Howard's clearance took only one bounce before going into the net.

The goal gave Everton a 1-0 lead in the second half, but Bolton rallied for a 2-1 victory. The wild goal made Howard just the fourth goalie to ever score in an English Premier League match.

Which was more impressive, Howard's goal or his incredible performance against Belgium?
