Everton goalie Tim Howard scores 100 yard goal

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard scored an incredible 100 yard goal versus Bolton putting Everton up 1-0 in the 63rd minute. Not only that, but he did it with only taking a single step wind-up. With the ball already coming at him with pace and a strong wind behind his back Howard was able to launch the ball down the field and with only once bounce land it in the back of the net. 

A humbled Howard spoke after the match: “I was delighted that we were in the lead and would hopefully go on to get three points, but it’s not a nice feeling for a keeper. It’s really awful actually,” Howard told Sky Sports. “For the back four and the goalkeepers at both ends, there was an awful wind swirling. You could see everybody was mistiming balls. Defenders were missing clearances that normally they would put up the field. I think the wind is the hardest condition to play in. Snow, rain, sun doesn’t matter, but the wind really does play tricks on you.”

Howard spoke with opposing goal keeper Adam Bogdan after the match. “I let him know that I was feeling for him,” Howard said. “It’s not a nice place to be. I’ve been there before, a long, long time ago, and that was why I didn’t celebrate.”

The idea for Goalden is to help other soccer players of all ages improve the many different aspects of their game. We began coaching youth teams and watching youth soccer all over Ontario. We watched semi-professional and professional teams and noticed how far the game still has to develop here. From that, we decided we want to help others obtain the best information as early as possible in their soccer careers. We want to educate readers about the game of soccer and the fine details that are often overlooked by coaches in North America.
