Secretary of Defence Chuck Hagel called ‘Secretary of Defence’ Tim Howard today to thank him for his amazing goalkeeper performance during the USA-Belgium World Cup game yesterday.
Howard was briefly listed as the U.S. Secretary of Defence on Wikipedia after his historic performance against Belgium in the U.S.’s round-of-16 defeat. Howard made 16 saves during the game yesterday, the most of any goalkeeper in any World Cup match on record.
Despite Howard’s stellar performance, the U.S. lost the game 2-1.
According to a readout of Hagel’s call sent to reporters, Hagel assured Howard he could actually become Secretary of Defence with the right training.
