[AMERICANS ABROAD] Tim Howard and Jozy Altidore returned home after the USA-Ukraine friendly to get set for quarterfinal matches in the English FA Cup.

Everton hosts Arsenal Saturday and Toffees manager Roberto Martinez could turn to Howard for the marquee quarterfinal matchup. Howard has sat out every FA Cup match so far in favor of young Joel Robles.

Altidore hopes to get back in the Sunderland lineup for the Black Cats' trip to his former club, Hull City, on Sunday.
