(AP) Tim Howard remains the No. 1 American goalkeeper despite a pair of strong performance by Brad Guzan in World Cup qualifiers last month.


Howard has been the starter since 2007. He missed the 1-0 win over Costa Rica and the 0-0 tie at Mexico after breaking two bones in his back while playing for Everton on Feb. 26. Howard returned to the English club last Saturday.


Speaking Friday as the U.S. Soccer Federation marked its 100th anniversary, U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said "Tim is No. 1 undoubtedly."


Klinsmann added, however, that he's pleased to see Guzman making a breakthrough and starting at Aston Villa. The coach says "the level he played those two games just makes you feel a lot better now having such a strong No. 2."
