World Cup hero Tim Howard was randomly DRUG TESTED after incredible 16 save performance

U.S. goalie Tim Howard was randomly drug-tested immediately after Tuesday's match against Belgium during which he set a World Cup record by making an amazing 16 saves.

Howard wasn't able to join his teammates in the locker room immediately after the 2-1 defeat because FIFA selected him to take the test.

‘I got dragged into drug testing, again, randomly,’ Howard told ESPN Radio when asked about the somber mood after the match. ‘So I didn't hear all of [the reactions].’

Two players from both teams are randomly drug-tested after each World Cup match, per FIFA regulations.

But some fans might wonder just how random Howard's selection could be - especially after the goalkeeper's impressive game.

 

 

He joked to ESPN that ‘maybe’ the test stopped being random after his 10th or 11th save.

FIFA has yet to release the results of Howard's test. No player has tested positive for banned substances at this World Cup.
