'Fantastic' Howard foils old club

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Everton earned an improbable 3-3 tie with visiting Manchester United with two goals in stoppage time, but it would have not been possible but for several amazing saves by its American goalie, Tim Howard.

Howard pulled off one of the best saves of his Everton career in the first half when he clipped a deflected shot by Paul Scholes with his foot. Soon thereafter, he blocked a shot by Ryan Giggs.

In the second half, Howard made another great save, stopping Nani with a low save.

United was leading 3-1 when the Toffees rallied on goals by Tim Cahill and Mikael Arteta.

"The goalkeeper was fantastic today," Everton manager David Moyes said. "I think the goalkeeper was probably the difference."

United left Wayne Rooney out of the team for fear that he's be subjected to "terrible abuse" following revelations about his private life.
