WASHINGTON, July 2 (UPI) -- The USA's heartbreaking 2-1 defeat to Belgium at the World Cup Tuesday didn't stop Twitter users from celebrating goalkeeper Tim Howard's defense with the viral hashtag #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave.

Howard was the star of the match after he saved a record 16 shots. The goalkeeper's name has been trending on social media since the match and one creative Internet user even made him the secretary of defense on Wikipedia.
