Tim Howard

ANOTHER AMAZING BLOCK

... When Fan Gets Too Close

Tim Howard's defense is still IMPENETRABLE ... throwing a QUICK BLOCK on an overzealous fan who tried to get too close at LAX ... and TMZ Sports caught the whole thing on video.  

The Team USA goalie had just arrived back to Los Angeles ... when he was bombarded by super-excited soccer fans who showered the superstar in praise.  

He signed autographs ... he shook hands ... but when one random dude went in for a hug -- that's when Howard broke out those cat-like reflexes ... and made sure the guy kept his distance. 

It's just like President Obama predicted when he spoke to Howard on the phone ... where he told him straight up -- "I don't know how you're gonna survive the mobs when you come back home man ... you're gonna have to shave your beard so they don't know who you are!"



Nothing gets through Howard ... NOTHING!!!!!!!! For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

At least he's able to fend off those who get too close. Some are not so fortunate.

cool to see that soccer or football depending where you're from, that it and the players finally have gotten the attention of the american public at large. that said good players, decent role models like howard are rare these days so good to see him reaping some of the benefits.

As humans, we are allowed to establish personal boundaries. Tim Howard should not feel compelled to hug randoms simply because THEY want one. lol

Tim seems to be uncomfortable with his new found fame in America......I loved the game and how he tried to carry his team, all alone......thank you for the only thing worthwhile in that game
