Tim Howard endures rough evening
by Paul Kennedy, October 23rd, 2009 7AM



[AMERICAN ABROAD] With Tim Howard in goal, Everton suffered its worst defeat ever in a European competition when it fell, 5-0, at Benfica in the Europa League. Howard could do little in the face of the Benfica onslaught. The Merseysiders were decimated by injuries and were no match for the likes of Argentines Angel Di Maria and Pablo Aimar. Clint Dempsey was the only other American to suit up Thursday but did not play in Fulham's 1-1 with Roma.
