Mirallas And Howard Shine In World Cup
Bookmark and Share

Tim Howard and Kevin Mirallas made good impressions for their national teams in the World Cup last night. Mirallas came on as a second half substitute for Belgium and made a big difference in Belgium's 1-0 win over Russia.

The Everton winger hit the post with a free kick in a game that saw Romelu Lukaku brought off in the second half after a poor performance.

Tim Howard made some top saves, but was left disappointed as Portugal scored a last minute equaliser. Belgium are now through to the last 16 and USA should join them, although USA could still go out on goal difference.

Tim said: "Realistically, we've given ourselves every chance to advance. We are where we want to be right now.

"We harped over and over again for Kyle Beckerman, Michael Bradley and Jermaine Jones to be the engine. My hat goes off to them. They have a tireless work ethic and we'll never lose that.

"Football is cruel sometimes. It ebbs and flows. We'll try to give ourselves 12 hours or so to ponder the result. We have a good chance to go through and we're excited."
