The U.S. lost to Belgium in the 2014 World Cup Tuesday evening, but despite that fact, USMNT goalkeeper Tim Howard gave an absolutely amazing performance.
So amazing that some suggested that FIFA drug test him after the game. As it turns out, the organization did “randomly” test Howard.
He finished the game with 16 saves (the most saves recorded by a goalie in 50 years!) and, quite frankly, he single-handedly kept the Americans in the match the entire game and stopped it from getting out of hand. He was actually so good that, during the match, some people out there suggested that FIFA was going to have to drug test him after the game:
FIFA better drug test Tim Howard after this match

Thoughts on the random drug test?
Does race/nationality play a role in folks doubting Howard’s performance?
