USA keeper Howard to be assessed prior to Algeria clash

USA goalkeeper Tim Howard will be assessed prior to their second World Cup group stage match against Algeria.

The Everton stopper injured his ribs in a collision with England striker Emile Heskey in the 1-1 draw in Rustenburg on Saturday but will be treated with caution as the USA prepare for their match in Johannesburg on Saturday.

"He'll be evaluated later today and then a decision will be made as to whether he'll need further tests," said head coach Bob Bradley. "Obviously he was sore - did a great job of taking a tough hit, and staying in it and playing really well. But we'll assess him later today and figure out then what we need to do from there."
