In recognition of Tim Howard’s inhuman goal-saving abilities, someone appointed the U.S. soccer player to the prestigious role of U.S. secretary of defense on Wikipedia at 10:42 p.m., July 1.

Howard saved 16 goals during the U.S. v. Belgium match, the most ever recorded in a World Cup game. Despite Howard’s valiant efforts, the U.S. suffered a 2-1 loss.

The Wikipedia entry was quickly switched back to Chuck Hagel, but that didn’t stop desperate fans from advertising Howard’s accomplishments elsewhere. Currently there is no statement verifying Howard’s bid for presidency.

Watch a video of Howard’s saves in U.S. v. Belgium below.
