Tuesday's World Cup match ended in a heartbreaking loss for the U.S. Men's team, but they had at least one accomplishment to brag about.

Goalkeeper Tim Howard made 16 saves, the most on record in a World Cup match.

Belgium managed to sneak in two goals in the 120-minute game to beat the U.S. 2-1, but Howard's performance didn't go unnoticed.

As one ESPN announcer put it, "he does not deserve to be on the losing side."

The New Jersey native quickly became a fan favorite, for his remarkable skills as a goalie and for his signature beard.

Moments after the game ended, he told ESPN, "I will never forget this night."
