The U.S. lost the match in a disappointing 2-1 defeat that ended their World Cup run in Round of 16, but Howard managed to steal the spotlight by making a record 16 saves in the game's 120 minutes.
By the end of the game, Howard's legendary performance had reached internet stardom sparking memes in his honor and the hashtag #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave.
Among the things Howard saves in the memes was swimmers from Jaws, dinosaurs, Blockbuster, the Titanic, and several others.
