[GUINNESS INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONS CUP] U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard's save of Federico Peluso's effort in the penalty kick tiebreaker gave Everton the win -- after a 1-1 stalemate in regulation time – over Juventus before a crowd of 22,208 at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Howard's heroics recalled his visit home four years ago.

It was the first game of the eight-team tournament that began with AC Milan beating Valencia, 2-1, in Spain. The remaining 10 games are all in the USA.

The win sends Everton into the semifinals against the winner of Thursday’s clash between MLS champion LA Galaxy and Real Madrid at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. Also on Thursday, Chelsea faces Inter Milan in Indianapolis. (Both games will be televised by Fox Soccer.)

Everton struck first in San Francisco, Belgian forward Kevin Mirallas hitting the net in 62nd minute. Ghanaian midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah responded for the two-time defending Italian champion with 10 minutes left. The game went straight into the shootout after 90 minutes and Howard, who has been playing in England since 2003, finished the hero on his home soil.

In 2009, on another summer visit home, Howard he saved three shootout PKs for Everton in its win over the MLS All-Stars.
