He's made some truly spectacular saves this World Cup, helping the United States men's national soccer team stay alive in the competition; so it should come as no surprise that goalie Tim Howard has become such a hero for many a USA supporter.
One fan, however, took his adoration for the Everton goalkeeper one step further this week when he got Howard's face shaved into the back of his head.
The awe-inspiring haircut was done by Rob the Original, a self-described "hair artist and master barber" who lives in Texas.
Howard himself seemed impressed with the haircut, tweeting this to his 340,000-plus followers Friday:
So this cut is the new rage back home? Lol pic.twitter.com/qIWQ9MFn8f

Rob the Original has become something of an Internet celebrity thanks to his incredible hair portraits of actors, singers, sports personalities and other celebrities.
Just last week, a photograph of Rob's handiwork went viral after he shaved the image of Guillermo Ochoa, Mexico's goalkeeper, onto the side of a fan's head.
