Tim Howard Aims for Second FA Cup win

Goalkeeper Tim Howard thinks an FA Cup final win with Everton on Saturday would feel even better than the one he enjoyed with Manchester United five years ago. Howard became the first American to win the FA Cup when his United team routed lower-league Millwall 3-0 in the 2004 final. But that was just one of the 25 major titles United has won under manager Alex Ferguson.

Victory for Everton over Chelsea at Wembley would earn the club its first trophy since 1995 and give fans a rare reminder of the status it enjoyed until the late 1980s as one of England's biggest teams. "In a crazy way, it would mean more this time," Howard told The Associated Press. "For all those reasons, but also because it's a very special club and it's become home to me."

Howard moved to Everton from Manchester United after serving as one of several goalkeepers trying to fill the gap left by the Denmark legend Peter Schmeichel. At Everton, Howard has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League on a team that has finished fifth for the past two years despite operating on a far lower budget than the elite clubs. Everton will need to beat one those elite teams, a Chelsea team loaded with international talent, to take home the FA Cup on Saturday (Saturday, 10 am ET, Fox Soccer Channel & Setanta Sports USA).
