Howard announced as Everton's first USA ambassador

Retired goalkeeper Tim Howard has been announced as Everton's first ambassador in the USA.

Howard will make his first appearance in his new role in Austin, Texas, later this month with fans being invited to attend an exclusive event with the American on Saturday, 26, October, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Howard will also represent Everton at NBC's Premier League Mornings Live earlier on the same day for the Blues' league encounter with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The former Blues man made a record 354 Premier League appearances during a 10-year stint at Goodison Park with his last game coming in 2016.

The 40-year-old officially retired from professional football on Sunday, playing his last game for Colorado Rapids in the MLS.
