Everton's Howard still showing USA confidence

USA goalkeeper Tim Howard is maintaining confidence that his side can still take out the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Bob Bradley's men bounced back from their loss to Panama on the weekend with a hardfought 1-0 win over Guadeloupe on Tuesday to move into the quarter-finals of the competition and the Everton man feels that they can improve enough to uphold their reputation as the best team in the area.

"A loss wasn't in the cards tonight," Howard said. "We feel we are a powerful team in the region.

"You can't lose two in a row, not two games that you are expected to win. That wasn't an option.

"Although the score line was closer than we would have liked, I think we controlled the game for the most part. It's not always pretty."
