RTE viewers mystified by Kenny Cunningham's description of Tim Howard as 'average' before heroic display

RTE pundit Kenny Cunningham described Tim Howard as average before the Everton keeper produced one of the performances of the World Cup during the USA's 2-1 defeat to Belgium and twitter went nuts.

The former Republic of Ireland defender showed a montage of Howard before the game and identified him as a possible weakness Belgium could exploit in Jurgen Klinsmann's team.

Howard then made 16 saves - the most by any keeper in a World Cup match since 1966, according to statistics - before two goals in extra time saw Belgium emerged victorious.

Cunningham then went on the exacerbate things by admitting that Howard had kept the US in it but they were saves he should be making anyway.

Here's the pick of the twitter reaction:
