Howard happy to return to Crew Stadium

Following Friday's night's loss in Kingston, three important points hang in the balance for the United States Men's National Team in Tuesday night's re-match in 2014 World Cup Qualifying. 

Where better to host than Crew Stadium, where the Stars & Stripes are 5-0-3 all-time? National Team goalkeeper Tim Howard is happy for the chance to rebound in front of a home crowd at a venue where the US has seen so much past success.

"Crew Stadium has been good to us," the Everton 'keeper said. "The crowd always turns out. It is one of very few places in America that we get a pro-American crowd in terms of the cast majority. That's going to feel really good. We've been away from home three games in a row now and we need some home cooking. All of our feelings leaving this stadium have been very positive in the past 10 years, so that's a good thing."

Howard was a part of the last US team to play at Crew Stadium, a 2-0 shutout of Mexico on February 11, 2009 as part of 2010 World Cup Qualifying.
